- Create a new branch called
gh-pages(which will then be a copy of master)
- Head to yourusername.github.io/markdown-cv to see your CV live.
Any change you want to make to your CV from then on would have to be done on the
gh-pages branch and will be immediately rendered by Github Pages.

gem install jekyllwill do for most users.
