Niteo IRL: O’RLY featured image

As a remote-first company, Niteo invests in doing bi-annual IRLs (In Real Life) meetups to get everyone in the same time and space. Spending time with Niteans face-to-face is invaluable. The bonds we create during IRLs are strong — but our meaningful connections do not come from the onsites alone. We consciously work to develop […]

Project isolation beyond requirements.txt featured image

I’ve been a Python dev for almost 15 years now and I’ve recently completely overhauled how I keep my development tools and dependencies in check. I’m so happy with my new setup that I couldn’t wait to share it with fellow geeks! Some background I used to use Homebrew to install tools such as pyenv […]

Niteo COVID-19 response featured image

This was supposed to be an internal memo sent to my fellow coworkers, but I decided to publish it here on our blog, to encourage other businesses to take similar actions. So here it goes. The situation with COVID-19 is deteriorating incredibly fast, on a global scale. WHO just declared it a pandemic. Additionally, there’s […]

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 […]

Keeping your head above water by managing your tasks and time featured image

In this blog post, I’ll write a little bit about the tools and methods I used to manage the chaos that used to be my workday. In my previous job, I was managing the IT departments in four different high schools. Every day at work I would get at least 50 emails and a lot […]

IRL #8: Bangkok featured image

Wohooo! It’s 2020 and time for our first IRL of the year Decade. We decided on Bangkok (known as Krung Thep in Thai) as the IRL location since it has relaxed visa norms and for its undisputed reputation as a fun city. By late Sunday evening and after the hustle-and-bustle for the few Niteans, the […]

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 […]

NixCon 2019 featured image

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to a smaller conference and I made the right choice to visit NixCon 2019. It was held in a really nice coworking space called Impact Hub in Brno. 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 […]
