I’m very proud of my three friends who finished the Berlin Marathon today. It was so inspiring to support and cheer for them!

If my math is correct, we’d need to forest 3 times the whole area of Brandenburg to offset the CO2 output of Berlin.

I wonder how much would it cost to buy up some farmland, convert it to a forest and capture tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Hello world!

I’m Engin. I have been building iOS apps since day one and became an indie developer after getting laid off.

I’ll do my best to document the adventure, the wins and the setbacks here. But this is not my first attempt at writing regularly. So don’t set hopes too high.
