Hi there!

I’m Ky-Cuong Huynh! Welcome to my personal blog and newsletter, where I write about how things work, how they break, and how to make them better. During the week, I'm a software engineer at Stripe. If you like what I write, you can buy me a coffee. 🤓

On the weekends, I can usually be found running, reading (see my Substack subscriptions), writing, enjoying a musical or museum, cooking with friends, and soaking in the great outdoors! I'm also certified as a Wilderness First Responder.

Finally, you can also find me on LinkedIn and GitHub.

(For the curious, “Ky-Cuong” is my first name and pronounced “key-coon” as in a “key to open a cocoon”. “Huynh” is my last name and pronounced “win” as in “win the race”. For the extra-curious, the cover image on the homepage is from Ruslan Bardash on Unsplash. It symbolizes self-transcendence and taking a broader perspective.)
