wasteman.codes is a monthly newsletter where I write about various software, mainly focused on data processing, databases, and the foolishness I encounter dealing with distributed systems. I previously mainly wrote on my website wasteman.codes, but have decided to mainly write on substack going forward. Feel free to check that out if you are curious about my old posts.

A blog about the foolishness I encounter, trying to get computers to do the things I want them to.


One of the many bay area software engineers who also has a blog. Mostly doing this for fun with no plans of making a career out of writing. But I like writing about interesting software problems I am facing on the job or am reading about.
