That’s quite the change, eh? The reason for building the previous incarnation of this site in Drupal is explained by my long history of working with, on, and for this great piece of software. As with everything, there’s a right tool for the job. Over time, it became clear the site did not need to be nearly as dynamic and powerful as a CMS like Drupal, and static site generation tools have become easy, fast, and secure alternatives. As both the job and the available tools have changed, I started looking at static site generators, and quickly settled for Hugo, because it’s fast, supports the content architecture I was looking for, and because it would be a good starting point for writing some Go myself. Perhaps.
You know, the root of the word “static” is a Greek word. “Static” come from the Greek word “στατικός,” which is mean “static,” so there Hugo.

So what is this new job the site has? As you can see, a new Articles section was introduced. This is where I will be publishing technology tutorials, demos, experiences, and highlights. The topics will differ, depending on what keeps me busy in the field of technology, and I’m sure there will be plenty of interesting discoveries to share.
