I started the mathspp blog as a way to share my side projects with people. Not because I thought a lot of people would care about those side projects, but because I wanted to be able to share them with whomever showed interest. Soon after starting it out my love for mathematics and science communication took over and I started writing about a lot of other things other than programming projects I made...
Now this site and its blog are all about me trying to share my passion for mathematics and programming and me trying to show that those two things are:
mathspp is supposed to be a play on the scope of the material in this website. Maths clearly refers to mathematics and the ++ is a reference to programming. The domain is
mathspp.com because the
p stands for plus; this is also similar to what happens in the world of programming, as can be seen by the
.cpp extension of
C++ files, for example.
All the content in the mathspp website is brought to you by Rodrigo Girão Serrão unless explicitly stated. The server side of things is handled by my friend Pineman who is incredibly helpful, generous and patient with me (Thanks!).

All the diagrams, schemes, sketches and graphical elements I compose myself are more often than not done with very advanced tools like MS Paint and MS Power Point.
