My name is André Torgal and this is my website, a place where I blog some thoughts and run a few experiments.

Here, you can learn more about me, my work as software engineer, and other stuff I have been up to.

House rules

Just to be clear: this is my space - I own the content, the opinions are my own, and it does not represent the company I work for at the moment.

If you find something that resonates with you, or otherwise object to, feel free to drop me a line via twitter @andrezero or email info@andretorgal.com.

One is a lie

  • I once worked in an obscure, surreal, movie production, so my name is on Imdb.
  • I am afraid of heights, but I once bungee jumped from 68 meters high.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo used to chill at my neighbor's house, but I never really talked to him.
  • I got a tattoo of a French character done by an American dude in the Czech Republic.

Under the hood

If you are curious about how this website was built is being built, take a look at the docs.

Spoiler: it's a static site, entirely generated from Markdown files here's the source code for the page you are currently reading. I'm using React Static as a generator, and on top of that, my models, collectors, transformers, and views, entirely written in Typescript and Scss.
