As you all probably have noticed, I have been quiet since October last year. Here is a status update on my side: September last year, I was laid off due to the strategic change of my last employer and I was busy with job hunting. Luckily, I'm able to join AWS in January this year to work on a new database service that will be launched later this year. In my spare time, I'm working on a project that is not readily available to the public and that steals lots of blogging time. However, the good news is that I'm still writing: I have written a set of notes that will be made public once the time is right. So, stay tuned!
