About

This is the personal website of Ray Miller, a programmer and one-time mathematician living in Cambridge, UK.

I work as a Principal DevOps Engineer at the fashion tech start-up Metail. My languages of choice are Clojure and Go, and that’s what I’ll most likely write about here.

I also have a (somewhat neglected) food blog. When I’m not at the keyboard or in the kitchen, you might find me cycling with CTC Cambridge.

Why 1729?

This is the Hardy-Ramanujan taxicab number, the smallest number that can be written as a sum of two positive cubes in two distinct ways. It has a few other interesting properties.
