I’m a guy from Germany who goes by the name of Sascha Offe and has an interest in software programming, SciFi, music and other (geeky) topics.
The main reasons for me to maintain this space are…
- to create my own, but also shareable, knowledge base
- to provide a central hub for my endeavors
- to train and improve my skills of writing documentation and other means of communication (in english)
- to function as a rubber ducking device, which in turn can also help me in the sense of “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”
Name: Well, the name saoe is short, the domain was available, it has a personal connection (combination of the first and last letter of my given and family name) and I like the (lowercase) look of it. The only downside: It’s not really meant for pronunciation, so I prefer to use it only in written form, or else spell it out like an acronym (“S-A-O-E”).
Tech: This site used to be a made with “WordPress”, and while I didn’t have any real issues with it, I always thought it was a bit of overkill, with all the database and PHP stuff going on in the background for my small site. So I switched to Hugo (the open-source static site generator) in 2019 and am very happy with it eversince.
