IDVC 2022 – Final Stats

As you would know, I run IDVC survey project, which collects the prices of idli, vada (vada), dose(dosa), and coffee across Bangalore. It’s an ongoing project. The idea is to map the price over time and across geographies in Bangalore.  

Part of that larger plan is also to publish the rates of idli, vada (vada), dose(dosa), and coffee at the end of every year. Since 2022 has ended. I have the stats here.

My Boring Yet Modern Data Stack

We have a data stack that we have been using for years now. We have used it with medium to large customers, and they have worked very well. The goal has always been simple, stable, composable tools that can be used on the developer’s machine and scaled to work with massive data on production. You can self-host them, host them on the cloud, or get managed services based on your need.

Very similar to my web stack. It’s called “Boring” not because it’s dull but because there are minimal unwanted surprises. So my current stack for data looks like this. This stack is both “Modern” and “Boring.”
