So I have been learning Ruby on Rails these past months, and I’m steadily learning the basics of the said framework. In this blog, I would like to share about one of the issues I encountered while building an app and the solution I found for the problem.
I recently set up my blog using Jekyll and decided to host it on Gitlab Pages. While Gitlab Pages provides documentation on how to set up a static website (and host for free!) using their platform, it’s not as easy as it looks, especially when dealing with a good old Jekyll theme. After spending some time looking for a Jekyll theme to use for my blog, I went on with Lanyon. This post will guide you through the steps and challenges involved in getting the Lanyon Jekyll theme to work on Jekyll 4 and Gitlab Pages.
You’ve always wanted to start learning something new to improve your skills. It may be a technical or soft skill you’ve been wanting to learn about/improve on. The problem is, you don’t have the time to spend for it. You’ve got work, have to commute, got a family to lead, got children to take care of — you have a life to live.

In keeping with that tradition, this post marks the start of blogging my learning journey!
