Last 2 weeks have been very exciting. The number of tools and technologies I have been working with is the reason for the excitement.
Ever since the magazine work began, I am on cloud nine. Literally on the cloud. I have been dabbling with Amazon Web Services extensively. Configured an EC2 Ubuntu instance and installed the necessary applications. Still working out the cost benefits of one feature over the other and fine tuning my setup.
Finally found time to upgrade to Mavericks OS X in my Mac.
I have started creating a number of Scala scripts for various mundane activities that were in my todo list for a long time.
Java 8 seems to be my favorite pass time as of now. Planning to write a number of posts on this topic.
