I first came across Netlify over a year ago.
For me, it was a whole new concept in web development and hosting. After looking into static site generators. I’ve found there’s a steep learning curve with SSG’s, but I’ve seen how prolific their growth has been in that time.
It doesn’t suck! The Netlify UI makes it easy to get a static site up. That’s a great start for a beginner: especially with secure domain purchase and setup . Once they get momentum; they can develop their site, and dive deeper into development.
The future of the web is static!
