Astronomer, psychologist, and MIT professor went to a design conference featured image

The title could sound like the beginning of some joke, but the modern design field attracts more and more professionals that don’t do that much drawing but build new systems and experiences. This year FITC Amsterdam again gathered a lot of great professionals to share their most interesting projects and thoughts. Now I’d like to […]

Reading Nix expressions featured image

These are my notes from the Reading Nix expressions talk in NixCon 2019. Nix package language has a similar syntax to the “JSON meets functional language concepts”. E.g. you have Let-expressions which I would say is a functional concept (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_expression) – I first saw it in Elm and Haskell. An important thing to keep […]

There were 2 tracks and about 180 people attending. Generally speaking, smaller conferences like this one will give you […]

Frontend week in Budapest featured image

Last week I attended my first two frontend conferences – CSSConf & JSConf Budapest 2019. My week in Budapest started with Rust meetup. Sadly the organizers didn’t expect that any foreigners will attend the meetup. Half an hour long talk wasn’t enough for me to learn any Hungarian, but I still had a great time […]

PyCon JP 2019 featured image

I’ve been to many conferences in my life, but this was my first time attending a PyCon. To me, what separates this conference from the others I’ve been to is the sense that people are there not so much to sell their products, but are just genuinely interested to hear how other people are using […]

Elm: A frontend story that a backend dev can love featured image

I’ve been doing Web development for about 15 years now. The first few years were mostly tinkering with PHP and doing basic changes via the browser using Plone.  Very early into my career I co-founded Niteo. And got the first few clients. We were n00bs, so we decided to use Plone to build client websites […]

Robust REST APIs with Pyramid featured image

It’s almost a year since we started working on a new project: WooCart. Up until that point, all our projects were “backend-monoliths”, i.e. the backend rendered all necessary HTML and served it to the user. Some templates had some jQuery or Vue.js sprinkled on top, but that was about as far as we were willing […]

This month I went to DigiMarCon in New York. I expected it to be a much bigger conference with more people, more talks to choose from and actual workshops. It was far from that but is a good conference to attend if it’s near you. I want to share here and expand on some AI […]
