Hugo is a static templating system. It is (mainly) used to deploy websites/blogs which don’t have and need dynamic content. The content of all pages is pre-generated, and the webserver delivers files from disk (or rather from cache, once files are loaded into memory). This approach allows for extremely fast websites, as no dynamic content is generated on every request.
While I know Hugo from work, I haven’t really used it for private projects - until recently. I have started a new project where I present interviews with people behind the PostgreSQL Project - and this is perfect for a static website. Interviews don’t change, once published.
For more than 10 years, the PostgreSQL Project is present at FOSDEM. We also organize a separate PostgreSQL Day on Friday.
This blog post presents useful information about both the PGDay and the booth and devroom at FOSDEM.
FOSDEM 2017 is over, and hopefully everyone is back home. Time for a short review.
Once again, PostgreSQL ran a pre-conference to FOSDEM, called PGDay. One day just filled with awesome PostgreSQL talks, and meeting community members.
Many speakers uploaded or linked their talks to the PostgreSQL Wiki. If the slides for a talk are missing, please contact the speaker and ask them to upload or link the slides. (For the record, my slides are here)
