Welcome to my blog. Here, I will discuss general programming topics, which I'm currently interested in, and also projects, which I'm currently pursuing. All of this will focus on three programming languages, python, javascript and C++. While my phd work, is mainly done in python and C++, I've recently taking a liking to javascript for my hobbyist projects. But more on this in later posts.

For those of you interested, this blog is generated with pelican a static blog generator written in python. Its a great piece of software, which can easily be extended and modified. In my eyes it has the following advantages:

  • its input is all pure text, makes it quite easy to version it using git
  • it can use markdown as an input format
  • it uses the great jinja2 template engine
  • it generates static HTML pages, and hence is lightning fast to serve
