Hugo, Azure DevOps and Azure Storage Static Website - a fast and modern hosting platform for static websites

Hosting a super fast, modern, yet super-simple blog on Azure for 2$ a month? In this post, I explain, step by step, how I run this blog “serverless” and how my architecture evolved and simplified over time. Never had so much fun to blog.

After over 6 years and 185 blog posts its time to leave Wordpress as a blogging platform and move on to Hugo. This move is not because I had to, but in the past I replaced many of the services I used to managed services (I am looking at you, Office 365!) - and this tiny blog is the only reason I have to maintain a, most of the time, outdated linux VM with a fully fledged nginx, a slow and certainly unsecured MySql database and what not - for a blog… that does not feel right.
