About

Together with my wife I run the ecommerce and web-publishing business homemade-gifts-made-easy.com. Before that, I studied mechical engineering and physics, did a research year in theoretical astrophysics, did a PhD in applied mathematics, worked for a few years in technology consulting and new product development, and started a homemade-gifts-made-easy.com as an experimental online side business. The side business took off and turned out to be a lot of fun, so back in 2013 my wife and I left our jobs to work on it full time and haven’t looked back. These days I spend my time growing our business, playing with my kids, and expanding my coding skills.

How to Deploy a Cryogen Blog to Netlify

Cryogen is a static site generator written in Clojure while Netlify is a slick and powerful platform for deploying static websites. Can they play well together? Yes! The Cryogen website describes how to deploy to Github Pages, which works fine, but personally I found it easier to deploy my site to Netlify.
