This is the first release for About. Creating this site was something that I’ve been thinking about for a while, but I wasn’t sure if I should do it at all.

In the end, I gave in because it made a lot of sense to have a separate site for static content like information about the product or blog posts. I also wanted to have our own site for our content because while Medium is a great platform, the content isn’t completely ours once it gets posted there.

There’s also the issue about SEO and comments. Using Jekyll just makes a lot of sense since it provides a lot of features that we don’t have to write as part of UI.

I don’t think we’ll have as much releases for About as the other repos though, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
