Installation & setup guide

This template is designed to be hosted using GitHub pages and so that's what these instructions will cover. If you plan on hosting it seperately then there might be some extra steps that we wont cover.

Before starting it might be useful to familiarise yourself with Jekyll, Markdown and GitHub pages.

Step 1 - GitHub

Step 2 - Create Repository

Create a repository on GitHub to hold your files and host your resume. You can find out how to do that here

Step 3 - Download Resume Template

Step 4 - Push it

Commit and push the resume template to github
