Hello! Welcome to 3LeafNodes.com. My name is Simone and I am a professional software developer specializing in web technologies and data science.

This blog will be a reflection of my current interests and thus will cover a variety of topics as these and the industry evolves.

More about the blog


The idea for the name of the blog came from a Decision Tree hyperparameter in Scikit-learn called max_leaf_nodes which can be set to control overfitting in Random Forests. I chose 3 of them because a low number limits overfitting, is easy to remember and works well in a logo.

Tech Stack

The blog is built on Jekyll. The templating is done in liquid. I use git for version control and git hooks to push changes to the server. I made the template myself in Visual Studio Code.

Images come from Pixabay or Unsplash. I recently discovered Ulna on ProductHunt. They pay the photographers using ads which is great! Fonts are from Google and Math is rendered by MathJax. Illustrations are drawn in Sketch.
