Just testing out my new Jekyll blog app. It took me about 2 hours to get this blog up and running on one of my current droplets in Digital Ocean. It was a fun process. I can write in my text editor using markdown and then push my changes to the server with git. The server then compiles and creates a static version of the website.

Now comes the fun part of actually creating my new blog. The ideia with this is to have a place to write down my notes and adventures about programming, design and startups.

In the past few weeks I played around with some realy cool javscript frameworks like Famo.us, Ionic and AngularJS. On the server side, I have been experimenting with realtime messaging with web sockets using Faye and I'm also creating a API with Ruby on Rails.

Besides programming, i have some other cool jobs going on like the project for the new Endossa store's front facade and the Flux 324 opening and closing credits animation.
