As you might have guessed from the name of this blog, my name is Guido Diepen.

You are currently looking at a continuation of my original blog which was served using Apache and Wordpress. With this new blog, I changed everything around and am now using Nginx / Node.JS / Ghost all running in Docker containers!

As you might have guessed from the above paragraph, I am a bit of a nerd and love to play around with new techniques and tools :)

My background is Computer Science in Utrecht, where I did not only receive my Masters degree, but also received my Ph.D. in Computer Science (well, actually Operations Research). Currently I am a Senior Datascientist at Cargill in the Netherlands.

I always have tried to live by the idea that the computer is here to work for me, and not the other way around. In my daily life I practice this also: any task that is repeated will be automated!! Depending on the exact details of the task, I will either use a Python program, a Bash script, or my favorite on windows: a Powershell script!

Besides automating pretty much everything in my (mostly working) life, I just love to travel and discover new places together with my wife!
