  2. Change the following variables in the _config.yml file:

    • title
    • repo
    • root
    • email
    • start_time : this is the start time in minutes since midnight. For example, 9 AM is 540 (60 * 9).

  • Sections should be named,, etc to be ordered in the schedule.
  • Edit the headers of each of your sections. Editing the duration of both teaching and exercises
