Weekly Notes 52/2022
We were supposed to be in Bangalore tomorrow, just in time for the new year. But Anju's grandmother passed away this morning. She was 90+ years. She had a wonderful life filled with grand-kids, great grand-kids. Death was peaceful. Her image in my head is always of the person reading the newspaper in the morning.
- Holidays are here, so just a few days before we started checking the holiday preparedness of our services. It is so much easier now. One person or a small team can do wonders with the cloud. I still remember working during the holiday season of 2007/08( I am trying to remember the exact year) for a top 10 e-commerce company in the USA. It was called the holiday preparedness project. It used to be such a difficult job, ten years, the cloud has changed the life of small teams.
- There seem to be COVID-19 fears again. I don't think the world, especially India, is ready for one more assault.
- I wrote another post on Embulk and Digdag, which are a significant part of my data stack.
- I will be in Mumbai for a day next week. If you are around, send a hello; I may have; just enough time to catch up for coffee.
