For a while now I wanted to migrate my websites away from Github pages. While Github provides an excellent free service, there are some limitations to its capabilities, and the longer I wait the harder (or the more inconvenient) it becomes to migrate away from gh-pages. AWS S3 + CloudFront is a widely-used alternative that has been around for a long time. Moreover, I was planning to get more familiar with AWS at all levels anyway. So, it’s a great learning opportunity too.
