About

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 šŸ˜›.

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).

About me

My wife and I in Tofino, BC

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 software that runs Apple AppStore. On weekends, I like to play with technology, dream about products, travel and dabble with photography.
