We'll learn how to build a custom Jekyll theme while using Gulp, Sass, and Foundation Framework. First we will step into Adobe Photoshop to create a mockup of our theme, and then we will spend the rest of the course creating the theme with the help of the command line and code editor. Software required: Adobe Photoshop CC 2015, Sublime Text 3, and Ruby.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Gary Simon, and I've been a freelance designer for the last 15 years, and I've had the privilege of working with over 1, 000 clients on a wide variety of projects. In this course, we're going to get involved with a very popular, static website and blog generator called Jekyll, which allows you to develop ultra-fast and secure web properties. We will be developing a custom Jekyll theme that you can either use yourself or give or sell to others. Initially, we're going to use Photoshop to create the theme mock up. Then, we will install Jekyll along with all of its dependencies. We will also be using Gulp, SASS, and Compass to aid in development of this theme. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to design beautiful mock ups, install Ruby, Jekyll, Gulp, and Compass, and using all of these technologies to deploy a custom Jekyll theme. By the end of the training, you will have a solid understanding of theme design, using the command line, Jekyll, Gulp, SASS, and Compass. I'm excited to share these tips and techniques with you. So, let's get started with the first lesson.
