Day -7

Day -7 (2nd June 2019)

Even though Day -7 would ideally be Week -1, I am placing it together with Week 0 as it was when the idea of the challenge finally crystallized and I was like, let’s do this :) !

Most of the day was spent in exploring static site options - how I would power this website. Contenders were Ghost and Hugo. In the end I chose Hugo because I found a familiar theme and authoring environment. Once I am able to use Ghost with Hugo (as a headless CMS solution), I will switch to Ghost+Hugo for workflow. For now, it’s GitLab pages + Hugo + this theme.

On a VPS, I now have an instance of Discourse running as a discussion forum for The Embedded Kitchen. I hope to utilize this to initiate discussion about the challenge.
