About Me

Portrait of Miika Nissi

My name is Miika, I’m a software engineer and a Linux/UNIX enthusiast located in Queens, New York City. I particularly enjoy learning new paradigms of programming languages and finding simple, efficient solutions.

I work as a software engineer at Tawasta. My work revolves around building open source business solutions for Odoo, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, using a technology stack of Python, JavaScript, XML, SCSS and Docker.

When I’m not programming or working with computers, I enjoy lifting weights, reading and being in nature.

My Website

My website’s publishing method 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.

This meme by @vincentdnl is an accurate depiction of my thought process for this site:
