Jekyll: Sites Made Simple sitepoint.com
Sitepoint has published an article on Jekyll, a static site generator. It goes in detail on installing Jekyll, creating the basic structure, testing the site locally and deploying.

They already have a number of screencasts up. Nice to keep an eye on or may be, practice on! :)
