A quote from Kahlil Gibran:

“Work is love made visible. And if you can't work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy”

Three things simply from today:

1. "It's later than you think"

A seriously heartbreaking but moving story about loss. Helps keep perspective about what is important. Warning that this could make you tear up during a meeting.

2. Google's dataproc service is in alpha.

Cloud Dataproc is a managed Apache Spark and Apache Hadoop service that
lets you take advantage of open source data tools for batch processing, > querying, streaming, and machine learning.

This is a really interesting alternative to HDInsights or Databricks. I will need to toy with this later.

3. Senior Engineer checklist

A great list of standards to print out and aspire to if you're looking to grow your career.

See you party people Tomorrow!!
