Hi, welcome to my blog! I am Kai Wern.

Here I write about software and life. Some of the tools I use daily are vim, Elixir/Phoenix, Rust, and PostgreSQL. You can expect posts about these from my blog.

Recently, I just finished up my batch in RC. During my time in RC, I have work on:


After my RC batch ended, I’m focusing on the following stuff:

  • Getting a job. Currently, I’m applying for different jobs, hoping to be able to pivot my career into working on lower-level systems.
  • Continue to work on my projects in RC, such as the database system, VSR implementation, and rok.
  • Learn more about data structures and algorithms.
  • Thinking of starting making video content about programming.
  • Start some side hustle so I can have multiple income sources down the road.

Abandoned Projects

These are the side projects that I worked in the past to learn, which now have been abandoned by me:

  • TIL: Today I learned a web application developed with Phoenix. It includes basic features like adding posts with Markdown and tagging. The idea of the application is inspired by Hashrocket TIL.
  • Expendere: A personal finance management web application that includes features like, expense tracking, budget, and recurring transaction (bills). It is developed with Ruby on Rails and a little bit of Preact. Due to limited time (and interest) available, it is abandoned now.
  • hbtrack: My first CLI to track habits! It’s written in Ruby and still functions well. But I stopped using it, and uss Streaks instead.
