About me

I’m Thorsten, a software engineer and occasional writer.

I work remotely for Zed. Before that I spent nearly 5 years at Sourcegraph.

I wrote and self-published two books: Writing An Interpreter In Go and Writing A Compiler In Go.

You can find me on Twitter and Mastodon.

What is Register Spill?

Register Spill is my attempt to more regularly publish some writing.

It’s a weekly newsletter in which I share the thoughts about software engineering I can’t keep in my head.

It’s very informal; it’s what I’d send you if you were to ask me what’s on my mind this week in an email.


I told you everything there is to know. If you want to receive short, weekly emails from me, hit this button:

Thoughts about software engineering I can't keep in my head. Too ephemeral for blog posts, too long for social media. It's the messages I'd sent if you'd asked me what's on my mind.
