About Me

Portrait of Miika Nissi

My name is Miika, I am a software engineer and a Linux/Unix enthusiast located in Queens, New York City. I particularly enjoy finding simple, efficient solutions and building on the knowledge of the past to solve new problems.

I work as a software engineer at Tawasta. My work revolves around building open source business solutions for Odoo, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, using a technology stack of Python, JavaScript, PostgreSQL, XML, and Sass. I also automate and improve DevOps processes by employing tools such as Docker, Ansible, and Bash scripting.

When I’m not in front of a screen, I enjoy lifting weights, being in nature and helping cat rescue organizations.

My Website Setup and Tools

The publishing method of my website has migrated from an automated bash script, to Emacs Org-mode to a Makefile based static website generator (mblog) and now to Hugo with my own custom theme. Throughout these changes my goal has remained the same: to make a simple static blog website, no JavaScript, no excessive CSS, but a distraction free place to share my ideas and guides on technology.
