Me and My Website

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, 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.

See you around

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.
