From the README: While the official documentation about Hugo Templates does provide all of the pieces to get started creating a theme, it doesn’t necessarily put them together in one, easy-to-see-together place. This theme attempts to pull all of the necessary pieces together into a theme that can be used as a starting point to create more sophisticated themes.

Résumé taken back from LinkedIn

It took several days of tweaking layout files to get the data laying out the way I'd like, but I have finally gotten my résumé imported into the web-site.
