Image of Anju's grandmother in my head.

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.

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.”
