aleksey-writes is a search index over all of my technical notes from the period 2016-2020.

I write a lot. I find that taking semi-detailed notes on things that are new to me as I learn them helps with my ability to comprehend those things. Plus it's a great refresher should I ever need to return to a particular subject at a future time.

If you absolutely need to know how much I know about I know about such ineffable concepts as, say, cross-entropy, look no further than aleksey-writes.


The frontend is in React. The search service is containerized ElasticSearch. The web scraper (used to parse the plaintext) is in Rust, run from some shell scripts. Plus a little bit of inlined Python, here or there.
