Headshot

My name is Sahand Saba. I am a former software engineer at Facebook, where I primarily worked on improving user experience in emerging markets, with short stints on Facebook Marketplace and Facebook Messenger video teams. Prior to Facebook, I worked at Google for a little over two years on serving and storage infrastructure. My master's degree was in theoretical computer science from the University of Victoria, with Dr. Frank Ruskey as my supervisor. My master's thesis was on the use of coroutines for combinatorial generation.

This blog is more of a hobby than anything. The posts are generally closely related to subjects I am either teaching or learning more about, or both. It also serves as a place to write about programming and mathematical problems and puzzles that I come across and find interesting, for example problems found in competitions such as ACM ICPC or Putnam. Most of the code in the blog is in Python, JavaScript, Java or C++.

If you would like to learn more about technologies and services used to generate, render, and host this blog, I wrote a post about it here.
