Hi, I'm Sage. I build up and break down stuff in the open. Recently, I finished my Computer Science study at Universitas Indonesia. Now, I work full-time as a Software Engineer at GudangAda.

I mostly work with Python. I enjoy using Django and I have made some contributions to it. During Google Summer of Code 2019, I implemented a JSONField feature for all database systems supported by Django. The feature was merged and included in the Django 3.1 release. I spoke about it at the DjangoCon Europe 2020 virtual event and an episode of the DjangoChat podcast.

I enjoy learning new things. Recently, I've been diving into front-end web development and trying out React, Vue, and Svelte while studying the differences between them. For this website, I settled with React, Next.js, Tailwind CSS, and TypeScript.

I grew up in small districts of Jakarta. I spend my free time writing, reading, playing music, and enjoying time alone or with my friends and family. I also play video games occasionally.
