Once upon a time, static sites were new and cool, even if very limiting. Changing them was tedious and required a lot of hand-coding or [cough] Dreamweaver design view. Eventually we gave up on static sites and went fully dynamic. Static sites were old and uncool. Today, however, static sites are cool again and don’t have all the limitations of the static sites of old.

There are a ton of tools available for generating static sites, the most popular being Jekyll. In this session, we’ll look at and compare Jekyll with several alternative generators.
