Review by S.H.:

This is a great introduction to Jekyll and to Static site generators in general, I’d recommend to anybody, especially developers like me who have struggled with the overhead and complexity of traditional database-based CMSes such WordPress and Drupal and are looking for simpler way to customize a website and maintain a blog. The skills learned in this course not only apply to Jekyll, but can be immediately used in other static site generators, even those written in different languages, since most of them obscure them beyond the markdown, front matter, and templating engine.


Save time and money by creating a website or a blog that is easy to maintain and easy to scale. You might even get a raise or a better job with these new skills!


This is a course for designers, programmers, bloggers, basically EVERYBODY with basic knowledge of HTML and CSS.

First we’ll download a free template. And than I’ll guid you trough the features that give Jekyll its strength and flexibility. I’ll show you how to add forms, comments and MUCH more. At the end of this course you’ll be CONFIDENT in creating ALL sorts of pages and blogs with Jekyll.


We’ll learn how to:

  • install Jekyll
  • create a new project
  • start a Jekyll server
  • create layouts
  • separate parts of the page in include files so we can use them on different part of the page
  • configure the Jekyll project
  • how Jekyll works in-depth
  • create a menu
  • create posts for the blog
  • add content to blog
  • add widgets to post
  • set up a post loop
  • set default values
  • set up a form
  • work with external data
  • add comments to blog

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
