EuroPython in 2018 was my first international conference. After five years, I eagerly joined another EuroPython. I hopped on a night train and woke up with a view of beautiful sunflower fields near Prague. With the conference starting the next day, I had some spare time to explore the charming city. In the evening I […]

The first things you see as you approach it are castles, numerous parks, and dragons. 🙂 The dragon is the symbol of the city. You will see dragons everywhere… on bridges, at the castle, and decorating railings and buildings. Moreover, Ljubljana is […]

Mabuhay! It’s winter 2023 and time for our in-real-life meetup. It’s our 11th IRL, but this will be my first time joining one. Because of the COVID lockdowns and the war in Ukraine, I was only able to attend these meetups virtually. We do these IRLs not only for work but also to bond and […]

Fast development on NixOS featured image

We’ve been using NixOS for a few years, and it has proven to be a stable and reliable OS. More importantly, it’s declarative and reproducible, which is one of the main reasons we decided to migrate ~700 of our Ubuntu servers to NixOS. However, it has a few downsides, and one of the biggest ones […]

It’s good to be back! The past two PyCons in Japan have been online, so it was nice to be back in person where you could actually enjoy the little things in between talks like meeting and talking to other attendees and exhibitors. This year, the event took place in Ariake, Tokyo, which is home […]

After three years, we finally got a proper IRL NixCon. Since the Nix community is not the biggest one, it was nice to talk about Nix for three days (two at the conference and one at the sprint). We heard many interesting talks and answered a few important questions. So let’s start with the most […]

Man… I can’t believe it has been two and a half years since I was abroad. The last time was actually IRL#8 in Bangkok, Thailand. A global pandemic and Japan’s strict border control sure made it difficult for an expat to go traveling. This time, though, the stars had aligned and I was once again […]

At the beginning of the month, I made a quick road trip down to Florence for this year’s edition of PyCon Italia. I try to never miss a chance for a conference I can *drive* to, and Tuscany is just such an awesome place to visit, it really was a no-brainer. The organizers have been […]

OceanSprint 2022 featured image

The mind has not yet completely recovered from all the brain explosions that happened during OceanSprint 2021, and I was already planning the next one. I’ve never organized two sprints so close to each other, but it worked out great! Domen and I knew exactly what we were getting into, most of the vendors we […]
