My Year 2022 in Numbers

My Year 2022 in numbers:

✅  1 incredible new role inside Riot Games thanks to my awesome X-Team.

I've had the amazing chance to work with outstanding engineers, Program Managers, Data Scientists, and Product Marketers who are very passionate about Gaming and Gamers

✅  Our little princess is growing like crazy (22 months old exactly until December 2022) and our 9 years old boy is getting interested in math and games. My wife is getting the bug of content creation as well.

Perhaps she will be with me in a future podcast? Who knows !!!

✅  617 subscribers and 2900 public hours until December 28th, 2022 in my YouTube channel.

2023 will be the year when I will be accepted inside the YouTube Partner Program.

I made a lot of videos this year, but one of my favorite ones is this called "Como prepararse para un layoff en 2023":

✅  I took the opportunity to work with the MotherDuck crew to launch a new monthly newsletter about everything related to DuckDB ecosystem in a month. 1 issue so far, but there will be more of them in 2023.
Thanks again to Ryan Boyd 🐤 and Tino Tereshko for the opportunity. Subscribe here if you love DuckDB:

✅ I launched a new newsletter to help people to find amazing Data focused roles called "Interesting Data Gigs".

This one has been of my favorite things of the year, and it has evolved from a newsletter in Substack with 20 issues and 213 subscribers, to a copy of this newsletter here on LinkedIn with 1606 subscribers to a Talent Collective with more than 20 open roles and 18 active candidates ready for an interview.

✅ I was accepted into the AWS Community Builders program (Thank you Jason Dunn, Caroline Kerns, and the whole crew behind this work) and although I was accepted as part of the Data cohort; one of my goals was always to launch something related to AWS Graviton.

I'm a man of action, so I launched "AWS Graviton Weekly, a dedicated Amazon Web Services (AWS) related newsletter focused on AWS Silicon (Graviton, Inferentia, AWS Nitro, and Trainium) news, resources, videos, articles, and more.

Thanks to this work, I had the chance to interact with amazing human beings like Jason Andrews, William Koplitz, Liz Fong-Jones, Michael Fischer, Stephen J. Barr, Rahul Subramaniam, Jon Myer, Cristian Măgherușan-Stanciu and many more. Thank you for your constant support. It means a lot

53 subscribers and 16 issues until this date.

2023 will be a huge year for AWS Graviton, so I'm more than excited to continue working on this.

✅ I had the amazing opportunity to work with incredible products like Quickbooks, beehiiv, ConvertKit, Circle, Deel, Testimonial, SparkLoop and more.

✅ And one of the craziest things of 2022? One of my questions was picked by the "Beasties" of the All-In Podcast, in an iconic episode like the 100th.
