Welcome to the newly revamped Hibernate and friends blog.
As you can see, we made it look like hibernate.org and we took the opportunity to clean up the tags to make them more useful. But we had other reasons to migrate.
- Blog early, blog often
We have been very happy with the Asciidoctor-based writing experience of both our reference documentation and of hibernate.org. We are bringing this ease of writing to our blog and the not so secret objective is for us to blog more. So if you don’t see more content here, you can start yelling at us :)
- Write once, display anywhere
There is an added bonus to using Asciidoctor for all of our writing: we can move content easily between systems. What starts as a blog can easily become a how-to page on the site or a section in the reference documentation.
We had a few issues with the old infrastructure that were keeping us away from our IDEs a bit too often for comfort.
This blog is a statically generated site, we use Awestruct. This means that we can make is scale very easily and with very low maintenance. Nothing beats plain old HTML :)
We did migrate all the old entries and comments from the old blog: fear not, nothing is lost.
