This month I plan to focus mostly on an internal project for Elastic Map Service, but we are also hosting our User Conference (ElasticON) in a virtual fashion where I will co-host a map session and will participate in a geospatial Birds of a Feather session.
Apart from the conference mentioned above, I will be participating in my first NACIS.org conf 🗺️, even it overlaps with ElasticON! I’m also more involved now on the Elastic Community here at Spain, looking forward to learn more local use cases and projects.
Not much to report on the personal side, we just started the third and last quarter of Alba’s pregnancy 🤰. We are finishing the purchase of a few things for the baby, working on keeping her gestational diabetes under control, etc.
Continuing listening through Death’s End from Cixin Liu. This is a 29 hours audio book so I think I still have a couple months to finish it. BTW, Audible has landed in Spain so when we finish all our 🇬🇧 credits, we’ll likely transfer our acounts.
My next audio book will be The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Leguin. I’m wondering if I should re-purchase the books from my queue below as audio books 🤔.
And in the what’s next/postponed queue, my usual non-fiction books:
- The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
- How charts lie: getting smarter about visual information by Alberto Cairo
- Work Rules by Laszlo Rock
- Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David Epstein
