Publishing with GitHub Pages

If you are looking for a relatively easy way to build your academic profile online, GitHub pages is one of the easier and inexpensive options. Using your GitHub profile, you can publish your resume, blog posts, and information about your upcoming projects without registering a domain, paying for an expensive service, or navigating a content management system. In this workshop, we will learn about GitHub pages as a method for publication. We will also discuss static site generators that use GitHub Pages, like Jekyll. We will then go over Markdown and HTML for rendering text and creating webpages. Markdown is an easy way to render and format text without using bulky markup, and HTML is the most common The HTML overview will also be useful for future sessions on webscraping.

Great hands-on workshop! I really enjoyed being able to do some practical exercises with markdown and using the GitHub desktop to update my repos.
