• Deploying WordPress to Gandi Simple Hosting with GitLab CI

    For this experiment I wanted to automate a Wordpress website installation using GIT into my Gandi Simple Hosting instance.

  • Starting With Jekyll

    This website has been online for quite some time as a WordPress blog. I know WordPress very well but never really put much time into maintaining a website of my own.

  • Developer Tools

    I have worked on all three major platforms, Windows, then Linux for some years and finally Mac. I do on my mac my daily coding and wanted to list the software on which I rely daily.

    If you are new to web development, I usually recommend tizag.gom which is where I started learning most of my php skills.

    I hope this list is useful to any fellow coders newcomers to the Mac
