Here I go again with a year review, you can read the previous 2022 Year Review
During the 1st quarter, I took the AWS Cloud Solutions Architect Professional Certificate on Coursera and on 1st April, I passed the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Exam getting the official badge.
At the end of May, my 4yo son Alex had severe peritonitis taking a 2 hours life-or-death surgery and then staying 1 week in the ICU. Tough times but with learnings. Fortunately, he fully recovered and he plays and draws like never before.
In September I was in Barcelona with the Worldreader team, we visited the Chocolate Museum and I had fun like every time I go there 🙂
This year I have read only 1 book: Invicto (in Spanish)
In the last quarter, I started lifting weights at home, going for a walk and running a few times per week, feeling better and with more energy. Also testing waking up earlier (6AM) but give me more time to make it work 😅
About Ghostboard 🎱

As you may know, I work on it on some weekends and nights. Unfortunately, this year the revenue was decreased -18.7%
A few things I can mention:
- I spent a few months at the beginning of the second half of the year migrating from MongoDb to Postgres and it impacted directly: no updates during this refactor and I introduced a couple of bugs (fixed in a few days).
- There were a couple of other causes that I'm aware of, that I already introduced changes. For example, a reminders for expiring cards 🥶
Anyway, since the last quarter of the year I've been taking action, planning and even changing my personal routines described above.
Let's see what I achieve in 2024 🏋️
Thanks for reading, Happy New Year 🥂
