Jekyll with Brett Terpstra

A conversation with Brett Terpstra about the static site generator Jekyll. Brett uses Jekyll for his personal site and has many complex modifications and customizations that allow it to work with his workflow.

Brett takes Jekyll customization to whole new level. During our conversation he reveals just exactly what that means. We also talk about who Jekyll is for, how it works, and the basics of getting up and running with it.
