About me

Hi, I’m Alex.

I’m a software developer living in Cambridge.

I used to study maths and spend my free time programming – now I program for work and spend my free time doing maths.

Outside work, I enjoy reading about World War II cryptography, learning new programming languages, and walks in the countryside.

My preferred pronouns are he, his and him.

About the site

This site is a place for me to write, when the mood takes me. It tends to slant towards technical topics, because that’s what I’m interested in, but there’s no particular theme or posting schedule.

It’s built with Pelican, a static site generator written in Python. I have a fork called Heron, which adds a couple of site-specific features: RSS link posts, use of SASS for style sheets, and some other minor tweaks. I host the site with Linode (referral link).
