Is Medium suitable for technical blog posts?

I have been using jekyll and github pages for a couble of weeks, it’s great because it’s customizable and easy to design and hack. it might not be perfect because of the way you add/write new posts.

So i was wondering if I should build my own blogging platform with the features that i need or i should just go with jekyll for a simple portfolio and move my blog posts to somewhere else ?

Many of you might have tried medium for writing technical blog posts, and i wanted to ask you, how was it ? is it easy to right big blocks of code in your posts, is the syntax gets highlighted or not ?
