1.1 Welcome to the Course

Welcome to a new Envato Tuts+ course. I’m Adi, and in this course, you’ll learn how to create static websites with Hugo.

Hugo is a free static site generator that allows you to write most of your website’s content in Markdown. It then takes that Markdown and compiles it in HTML, bundled along with all the CSS and JavaScript to create a functional website in no time.

In this course, I’ll show you how to install Hugo, how to pick a theme and configure your website with just a few lines of code, how to add content, and also how to publish that website to a live server using Netlify. All for free!

Sounds good? Alright, let’s get started then.
