Hey! I’m Paschalis a 26 y/o SWE from Greece.
I’m a Physics graduate, with experience in various roles, in both academia and the industry.
I have experimented with a wide array of modern and not-so-modern technologies, am a
vi person, prefer to work with Python and Go, and generally try to adhere to the KISS principle. most problems can be easily solved using grep/sed/awk/pipes, cmv

I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting things, but here are some weekend projects I’ve worked on, outside of my main job.
- sunlight.live is a real-time visual map of sunlight on earth.
- geohash.world is an API to encode and decode coordinates using the Geohash geocode system.
- daffodil is a distributed ID generator à la snowflake.
- goof is the easiest way to send and receive files over a network.
- tweetstream.space allows indexing tweets in specific timeframes.
- go-tinyraytracer is a ray tracer in Go.
It was surprisingly easy and a lot of fun, that’s why I also coded a ray-marcher and also building a renderer in Go. Check out all of ssloy’s work if you’re interested in this kind of stuff, no previous knowledge needed.
- shell-utils is an embarassingly small collection of shell scripts that provide day-to-day quality of life, that I’m planning to extend a lot.
- bashercises.co is a dead simple Markdown/Jenkins/Hugo/S3 project. Last year I’ve been working with shell scripting a lot, and I’m planning to distill all my notes into complete cheatsheets and provide exercises to beginners, so they can master the console way of doing things.
- (to be filled out with more stuff as they’re polished).
