We already had a web site and this replaces it.

This is great news and we are really excited about it because:

  1. Our new blog software is a minimal version of the Kidoju MEAN architecture.
  2. It is deployed on Amazon AWS, with multiple docker containers, nginx proxies and an AWS load balancer.

In other words, we have turned this web site into a test lab to bullet proof our Kidoju architecture and deployment before release.

We are online!

Apart from the benefits of such test lab, we have built a new blog software for several reasons:

  1. Considering our extensive use of Kendo UI widgets, customizing WordPress, Blogger or Ghost to our UI design guidelines was not an easy task;
  2. If we are found of Jekyll and Octopress, rebuilding the web site when content changes is too constraining.
  3. We like markdown and Github offers a great environement to write and version markdown files.

We have made our blog software free to use for everyone.
