Stefano Balzan, MSc student and IT consultant, in my 20s.
Fond of technology in general, anything ICT related, electronics and making. Passionate about passionate about teaching and astronomy since forever.
I hold a BSc in physics and have a strong background in computer science.
I’m currently interested in the field of data science and AI, which I’m exploring through my MSc program and personal projects.
I love spending my free time outdoor, hiking or sailing.
A static personal site and blog built with Jekyll, private Gogs and Nextcloud.
Everything is self-hosted on an Odroid C2, a small ARM board running a full LEMP stack. I personally maintain the server and often use it to host personal projects and experiments.
It started as a random experiment with a Raspberry B+ I had laying around at home. At the time I was working a sysadmin side job and wanted to play around with my own server, setting it up from scratch.
Over time I ended up buying a domain, installing a web server and configuring all the services I needed.
Eventually I moved onto more powerful hardware: a 1.5 GHz quad-core 2GB RAM Odroid board.
That’s all it takes to host a personal website. Some could even argue it’s an overkill :)
