Yesterday, I started reading this book, The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win, by Maria Konnikova. So far, I’ve finished four chapters from the book. And I think it will take me some time to finish it!
Thank you jasonbraganza, for recommending this book!
Below are some excerpts from the chapters (I’ve read so far), that I want to put here for...

Okay, finally I’m here writing something technical. I’m still not sure what’s gonna be the flow but I’m keeping my hopes high (
or otherwise I'll strike it once I'm done XD).
Actually this post is gonna be my talk-notes for the Liz Rice’s talk What Have Namespaces Done for You Lately? So, everything written later in the post is entirelly credited to Liz Rice who in-turn thanks Julian Friedman...

Apart from the daily office working hours, nowadays, I’m devoting a good part of my day, actually working on constructing some good habits in myself (oh yea, definitely, meanwhile improving the bad ones).
To me, reading books, writing morning pages, daily journal, taking occassional hand-written notes and doing my meditation, I consider all of these as the best things, that I’ve built & earned over past few months. And...

I always saw this incomplete, half written draft about my experience applying to Outreachy internship, lying in one corner of my folder. At first I thought I should just delete it because I’m already done with the internship & I’ve already written my wrap-up post describing a little about my experience. But then I just couldn’t do it only.

Too tired to write a detailed technical blogpost today. So, will try to keep it short & simple, and just writing about some updates here.
I gave my first ever talk yesterday. It finally happened! (this is a note for myself :P).
I procastinated for how long I don’t even remember now. Even I don’t know if it was just procastination or was accompanied by my some more lame thoughts...

Yesterday, I wrote a post around writing custom GCP type providers.
That post basically provided a solution to one of the problems I faced while deploying a resource (a private dataproc cluster with a Presto installation on it) on GCP for which there was no official GCP type provider available.
Today’s post is just an extension with a similar use-case, where again, I needed to write a custom GCP type provider,...

A few weeks back, I was working on writing automation templates, for achieving a one click deployment of the entire Atlan stack, on Google Cloud Platform(GCP).
And writing automation templates here, basically, meant writing Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
Here, the good part is that GCP has its own internal tool/software, called deployment-manager, for writing Infrastructure-as-Code(IaC). It supports automation using Jinja & Python templates.
I chose to write all my templates...

I was lazy!
And I didn’t write anything here (for a very long time, and I know it’s nothing good to brag about).
But because I should write for my own goodness,
I commit to writing on this blog at least for once every 2 weeks.
I know it’s doable, but I do break the streak very easily. I write with a nice frequency for a while and then stop it eventually...
