Here’s what I’m doing now.
I work full-time at API7.ai , where I help build Apache APISIX .
Apache APISIX is an open source, high-performance, cloud native API gateway.
I work to ensure that APISIX’s users have the best experience using APISIX. I also travel a lot to talk to more people about APISIX.
Blog and Newsletter
I write on this blog about my work and my other projects. I also send biweekly newsletters to a couple of hundred people.
I don’t plan to work on these full-time or scale and monetize them, at least for now.
I’m currently reading the novel “The Maid ” by Nita Prose. I like thriller novels; they are my go-to genre when I’m in a reading slump.
I’m also reading “The Anarchy ” by William Dalrymple. It talks about the East India Company and how it rose to power against Indian kingdoms.
I like learning history. I’m terrible at it, and I have been improving my knowledge by reading more history books.
I have also been using Readwise for articles and newsletters. It works really well. I will create a public list of my subscriptions soon.
Side Projects and Hobbies
I’m not working on any side projects now. But I have a big “Ideas” document that I find myself updating constantly.
A lot of my hobbies, like playing my bass guitar, have reduced significantly. I plan to spend more time on my hobbies after a few months.
