Teaching with 11ty

As if the popularity of 11ty in a certain class of developers was not high enough, I learned today that Google are also in the 11ty business. Their new course on learning the basics of CSS, creatively named Learn CSS, is written in 11ty.

In fact it turns out that the whole web.dev web site is one big 11ty site. You can find the source code on the web.dev GitHub repository.

Who knew that 11ty had friends in high places? It’s certainly testament to its flexibility that it can be used to build such a large and diverse site.
