I love going to conferences in London because it is one of the rare cities I have a direct connection to. We were invited to this one and being a small SaaS conference with great speakers lined up it was a no-brainer. I only wrote notes for the two talks that impact our business the […]

Resuming uploads to Amazon S3 featured image

I am escaping continental winter at the moment which means my internet connection is not perfect. I was uploading a 1GB file to Amazon S3 via the console.aws.amazon.com and the upload failed at 93%. Just my luck! I didn’t want this to happen again. So I tried using Cyberduck to upload and intentionally turned off […]

IRL#4: Istanbul featured image

Last month we again held our biannual in-person gathering of all Niteans, the IRL. As is customary, we meet somewhere warm for the winter edition of the event. This year we chose Istanbul, Turkey. A stunning city with millennia of heritage. We’ve gotten good at running IRLs so this one was by far the most […]

AWS EC2 gotchas featured image

Lately, AWS has been giving us a lot of headaches on the Easy Blog Networks project. It turns out only because resources (we pay per how many things we can do per second) are fiercely measured on AWS, but the underlying problems are happening on all EBN providers. So when we go over operations per […]

Recording Talks featured image

Last year on IRL#2, our biannual in-person get-together, we decided to start recording talks, so that those that could not attend in person would be able to watch them at some later point in time. Turns out, there is another great use case for these recordings: onboarding. Whenever a new person joins our team, these […]

“Bang a gong, get it on.” While the lyric is pulled from a modestly talented rocker in the 70s, it does hit a key entrepreneurial principle. Some companies and businesses ring a bell when something good happens or an achievement reached. At Niteo, we give kudos and +1s. The wall of happy Laszlo Bock, head […]

Conference hiatus is over featured image

Back in the day when Niteo was still a consulting company I had to do a lot of traveling to find and do work. And to attend conferences. I loved to go to conferences. But being away so much, in boring hotel rooms and eating out every day took a toll on my (mental) health so […]

SaaStock, September 2017, Dublin featured image

This was one of my first conferences outside the Internet Marketing industry and I mostly went to it to expand my horizons and see what successful SaaS companies are doing. Coming from a bootstrapped and ROI-focused background, what struck me as strange was the definition of success (or at least a path to success) for […]

Upgrading our Intranet to Plone 5

  Published on 2017/03/16

 By Neyts Zupan

While we haven’t done any Plone consulting (well, *any* consulting to be exact) in over 3 years, we still use Plone internally, every single day. It was about time our Intranet got some love, so I put on my disco pants, poured some of Belgium’s finest and got to work. Our installation was an old Plone 4.1 […]

It’s January — time for the “IRL”, our biannual in-person get-together. Summer IRLs happen in (around) Slovenia since that means short travel for the majority of the team plus it’s hard to find a more beautiful place in those early summer months. That said, come winter, Europe gets, well, uncomfortably cold.  And most of us […]
