We've all been there – moving files one by one, minifying our scripts, running our CSS compilers – all by hand. But there's a better way! The proliferation of static site generators have led to an explosion of tools that make it easy to automate the tedious parts of static site building and achieve consistent results. If you've ever used a tool like Jekyll, you've used a static site generator! In this workshop I'll show you how to build your own basic generator with node.js, walk through how all the parts interact and set you on the path of being able to customize a generator to your needs.

Comfort with working on the command line required! Experience with or awareness of node.js recommended.
