About this event

This workshop will be delivered by Renato Alves (lead), Julian Bauer and Lisanna Paladin over three afternoons (13:00 - 16:00BST) from 23-25 May.

GitHub Pages provides a cost-free way to build and host web pages and sites, commonly used by the open source communities to provide documentation on software projects, and to create individual, group or organisational blogs and websites. However, for those taking their first steps towards building sites like this, the process can be confusing and intimidating. This tutorial aims to address this, by providing a step-by-step guide to creating a collection of pages and combining them into a coherent site using a framework called Jekyll and hosted using GitHub Pages.

Pre-requisites: This lesson guides you through making websites using Jekyll in a web hosting service GitHub Pages so you will need a GitHub account and to be comfortable interacting with GitHub to a certain extent (we will take things slowly). Basic understanding of HTML and/or Markdown as webpage authoring languages is welcome but not a must.
