Who: My name is Diego Zamboni. I am a computer scientist, security expert, consultant, project and team leader, programmer, sysadmin, author and overall geek. I am from Mexico but live in Switzerland with my beautiful wife and our two awesome daughters.
What: I work as Enterprise Security Architect in the IT Clouds Division of Swisscom. I am also the author of “Learning CFEngine” and “Learning Hammerspoon”.
Where: I was born in Argentina, but have moved around all my life. When I was very young I moved to Mexico, where I lived in four different cities before moving to the U.S. to pursue my Ph.D. at Purdue University under the direction of Gene Spafford. Upon finishing my studies, my wife and I decided to go to Switzerland, where I worked at the IBM Zurich Research Lab. Eight years and two kids later, we moved to Mexico in late 2009. In 2015, we moved back to Switzerland.
Long version: If you are interested, here’s my curriculum vitae. For other useless trivia about me, see here.

About this site
This entire site is generated by Hugo and served by Netlify.
The source is stored in my zzamboni/zzamboni.org GitHub repository, which is devoted to this content. Recently I started using ox-hugo to generate the content from a single source file in org-mode format, although all the older articles and pages are still stored in their original source Markdown files (I gradually convert them whenever I update them). Some of my project pages are stored in the
gh-pages branch of their own github repositories. Since GitHub Pages supports custom domains, all of them can be transparently hosted under the zzamboni.org domain.
I think it’s incredible that all of this infrastructure is so easy to use and available for free.
