Cat Cai

Who I Am

Hi! My name is Cat Cai. I’m a software engineer who currently bumbles around a lot in Kubernetes, Go, and Ruby for a company called Shopify. I’ve also been known to sometimes do Python, C (very poorly), and JavaScript (mostly for React Native).

In the not-so-distant past I was a tech and games freelance journalist for the likes of VG247 and Tom’s Hardware. I used to also work as a lighting director and technician around Los Angeles.

About this blog

This blog is just an odd assortments of engineering things that I’ve found interesting/complexing/just overall strange as I wade through the tech world.

I’m hoping that some of the things I write about end up helping others. (They’ve certainly helped me sometimes. I’ll be a year past a problem and end up digging through my old notes and blog posts and end up finding the solution.)

Getting in Touch

While I’m not the best about keeping my social media (or this blog, let’s be real) up to date, I love getting feedback about what I’m writing about. I’ve had the privilege of working with many smart people who’ve always given me good pointers/constructive notes on how to improve my process and code thinking.

I’m reachable at my Twitter. If for some reason you don’t want to reach out via Twitter, you can always hit me up via my LinkedIn.
