SelectedTech is a group of four MVPs doing webinars and sessions on SharePoint, Office365 and the Microsoft AI ecosystem. Learn, Share, Reuse. We are Albert-Jan Schot, Rick Van Rousselt, Stephan Bisser and Thomy Gölles.We decided to work together as a group to release webinar like videos. What we want to show is how we do stuff. We meet online and hit the record button. There is not a lot of time for preparation or planning for our webinars. As a result, you will see mistakes and errors, not high polished content. We strongly believe that showing how to overcome those hiccups adds additional value to the content.

Episode 9 is all about using Hugo and Azure Static websites. Appie walks us through how he used Hugo for his own blog and how we use it here for serving this website.

We talk about how Hugo is used to create a static website on your local machine and how to test it during the content creation process. The source of the site is then commited to a Github repository. From there Azure Pipelines take over to publish the generated html file to an Azure Static webiste, et voila, new content is published on our page.Shownotes of episode 9: the show ( the show (
