About me

Hello, My name is Amit Saha.

I live in Sydney, Australia. I would like to acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of this land and pay my respects to the Elders both past and present.

I work as a software engineer for Atlassian. You may be interested in learning more about articles, books and other training materials I have authored. I also share things I learn via presenting at various conferences and meetup groups. I am not an expert on anything I write or share, so if you find a mistake/error in anything i share online, please let me know.

You may find something useful on my GitHub (a software repository host) profile.


You can contact me via email (GPG key: 80B8B7E1857DC5B215B48EBE2A18534CA9B35D2B) or message me on LinkedIn.

I have a scheduling link which you can use to book a video call with me if you want some one to discuss stuff with related to your career in technology, writing a book, speaking at a conference/meetup or contributing to open source. I would of course appreciate it, if you send me an email prior to our call.

This blog

This blog is generated using Hugo and hosted on GitHub pages powered via GitHub actions.

The publishing flow for me looks like this:

  1. I write my new content as a Markdown file and push a new commit with my changes
  2. (1) triggers a build - a GitHub action action
  3. A Docker image containing hugo is built using a custom Dockerfile
  4. The image is then run to generate the website source
  5. The generated website source is then pushed to amitsaha.github.io
