“Everything that’s not a post or a page can be represented as a collection”. - Ben Balter

Collections are a powerful way to manage your content in Jekyll. They can be:

_posts is a collection, So is this tutorial.

Collections become a namespace at the site level “site.xxxx”. They are organized by folder “_xxxx”.

In this next section, we’re going to add a custom collection for holding all the notes your going to capture at Connect Tech. Then we will build an index page that lists all your notes for easy reference.

Goal: Rather than flood your new blog site with individual entries for all the talks you attend at Connect.tech. Use a collection to hold individual entries and provide your readers with a succinct listing of events you attended.
