This presentation takes you through the journey of transitioning www.willhallonline.co.uk from Drupal 7 to Hugo. The highs, the lows, the terrible jokes and the takeaways.
Over the past year, I have moved my site between Drupal and Hugo to build a static site hosted on GitLab. In this talk, I’ll take the audience on a blast tour of building, testing and releasing a site using GitLab Pages and how it can all be done for FREE, using a combination of GitLab CI, GitLab Pages, CloudFlare and Let’s Encrypt. I also venture into how I adopted DevOps practices to be able to build and improve the site and the code and how this offers great potential for larger businesses looking for sustainable and secure web presence.
