Hi there!

I’m Ky-Cuong Huynh, a software engineer at Stripe. Welcome to my personal blog, where I write about how things work and how to make them better. 🤓

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”.

To relax, I'm usually outdoors (hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing) or reading (see my Substack subscriptions). I'm also certified as a Wilderness First Responder.

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

(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.)
