I’m finally updating my nameplate site and migrating my blogging to Octopress which is based on Jekyll, arguably the most developed static site generator that is currently available.

Another reason I went with Octopress is to learn some basic Ruby. Most of my web development has been in PHP either through custom code, Wordpress, or Drupal. Lately most of my webdev work has been in ASP.NET/C# while updating an existing application to work on AWS as well as general refactoring. However, Ruby has a huge following in the web development world, one of my main areas of interest, so it would behoove me to learn as much as I can.
