UQCS Website

Build Status

The website of The University of Queensland Computing Society.

This site is made in Jekyll which is compiled to static files on Jenkins (see the build status icon) and then hosted on the UQ Cloud.


The UQCS site is a place to show off both the club itself, and the work its members. You can contribute ideas, bugs or suggestions by clicking the Issues tab above and creating a new issue.

You can contribute code by forking the repository, making your changes and creating a pull request. It's encouraged to create an issue for the changes you plan on making in your pull request and you should mention the IDs of any issues you work on in your pull request description.

Want help with creating a pull request? No problem! Email us at for help, or ask in Slack.

Building locally

The site is made in Jekyll, to build it:

  • Install Ruby = 2.3.7 (you may want to use rbenv)
  • Install the bundler package manager using gem gem install bundler
  • Navigate into the website repository and install the requirements using bundler bundle install
    • bundle install not working? Try bundle update first, this should fix most Gem installation issues (just make sure that you don't add the modified Gemfile.lock in your pull request)
  • You can run the site locally while you develop using jekyll serve

The final website is built by our Jenkins server using jekyll build
