Hey,
I'm Candost.

I am a software engineering manager and writer.


I used to think reading would help me learn.


One day, ten pages before finishing a book, I realized I had read that book before. At that point, I decided to change a few things.


On this website, you'll find how I evolved, what I learned, and my reflections on the complicated life and world.

EmailsSEE ALL

Every second Tuesday, I send Mektup, a newsletter that arrives as casual letters reflecting my learnings and thoughts about software engineering leadership and life.


I also send notifications of my new blog posts and podcast episodes. You can unsubscribe from any of them separately whenever you want.
