This is my personal blog for organizing and sharing my thoughts on subjects of my professional and personal interests. Articles are usually written in English and sometimes in Finnish — my native tongue — in a worknotes kind of fashion.

What you can find here

  • Git for Version Control
  • GitLab for Git hosting and CI

  • Flask ecosystem for REST APIs and Webhooks
  • pandas, jupyter, seaborn, scikit-learn etc. for Data Analytics related needs

  • React.js for SPA development
