I want to divide this page into two parts: about this site where I get into why and how this site exists, and about me where I will brag about how awesome I am 😛.
About this site
This site exists because I get the on and off urge to write out my thoughts, particularly (but not limited to) things I am working on, places I have visited or random trivia that may not be every useful to humankind.
The site is running on Ghost, a headless Node.js CMS, hosted on a $5 DigitalOcean droplet with 1vCPU and 1GB of RAM. In the day and age of cheap hardware resources, this website is my experiment on running a public website with minimal resources (there is literally no smaller droplet available with DigitalOcean).
By way of introductions, my name is Abhishek Dey Das (yes my last name has two words). My day job, as a Sr Software Engineer, is working on some cool core features using multiple technology stacks for the Amazon Freight business. On weekends, I like to play with technology, travel, take photos and spend time with my family.
