About Dragon's Egg

What is Dragon's Egg?

Dragon's Egg is a hybrid newsletter and blog covering topics related to databases, data management, and data protection.

I love learning about varied topics, and sharing them with others through my writing. My goal is to create a safe and trusted community of like-minded individuals with shared interests in technology (to begin with), and other areas (in due course)!

Data Management Blog

I enjoy re-interpreting complex technical topics so that they're fun and easy to read, and recollect!

For the blog, I typically focus on original long-form content on technology concepts, architectural analyses, and historical perspectives.

Occasionally, I might also curate and review external content from around the web, including my own analysis and commentary on them.

Deep Dive into Google's AlloyDB Architecture for PostgreSQL is an example of a long-form blog post, focussed on the architectural and design details of the Google's AlloyDB database.

Data Management Newsletter

The newsletter is a periodic email I send out to subscribed members. It includes highlights both from around the web and my own blog section, along with my own thoughts and commentary on the topics.

Compared to the blog, the newsletter is also more topical, and may include time-sensitive content, such as interesting upcoming webinars, conferences, and meetups, so you can keep up with the latest in the data, data management, and data security space!

Newsletter #2: S3 Misconfigurations, MLOps, Vertical Integration is an example of a newsletter that you will receive if you subscribe for emails.
