Hugo is a fast, and very powerful, static site generator. I use it for my blog, as well as for fancier things like Markdown-based slideshows. I also use it for practically everything else I can, and every time I have to use a database-backed CMS I cringe and plot to rip it out. In this talk I’ll explain the basics of Hugo and how it works.

This talk covers the following points:

  • What is a static site, and what are their benefits?
  • How do you build one?
  • What is Hugo?
  • How do you use it?
  • Resources and links to further information
