What’s Hagakure?

Hagakure means “hidden by the leaves” and is the title of a Japanese practical and spiritual guide for the warrior by Yamamoto Tsunetomo. The Book of the Samurai — as it is subtitled — consists of a series of short reflections giving both insight and instruction on a wide variety of subjects, in no particular sequence.

This newsletter is curated with the same mindset, to help engineering leaders explore, connect dots, and grow. Everyone’s welcome, though.

What to expect?

3 articles. 2 podcast episodes. 1 book. Zero rules. Once a week.

(with a hat tip to James Clear. Standing on the shoulder of giants.)

Who’s behind this?

I’m Paulo, and I have been working for technology companies in different parts of Europe for a good few years now. Most recently I have taken engineering leadership roles at some fast growing startups and scale-ups in the food and travel spaces.

I believe in being well-rounded, and a generalist. My whole life has been about exploration and going for what inspires me. I do think that has served me well and made me a better individual. This newsletter is about paying that forward.
