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 […]

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 […]

The goal of this post is to show you how to properly use encode and decode in python 2 and in python 3. This post will be based on small examples that will (hopefully) make you better understand how strings work in python 2 and python 3. A bit of background on unicode and UTF-8: […]

NiteoWeb is a remote-first team. While we do have a physical office in Ljubljana, few people go there regularly. Most of us prefer to work from home, from coffee shops or from the beach. Wherever and whenever we feel we are the most productive. While remote work certainly has its benefits, it does indeed have […]

At the end of October there was a Python conference in Munich (PyMunich). For a regional conference it was quite big in my opinion. There were 3 tracks and more then 40 speakers. As always I won’t cover all the talks just the ones that I found the most interesting and educational. After all this […]

A dev’s MacBook from scratch

I’ve been a long time Apple user. I hate a lot about the company’s policy and how they treat their power users, but I love the tight integration between their software and hardware. Another thing to love is their migration tools. You buy new hardware, you click Restore from backup and you are done. Safari […]

We attended one in April, where David talked about theming and Emanuel about bringing WordPress into the Public Sector. On the second one, in June, we were active participants: Janez and myself delivered a talk titled Lessons learned running 25k WordPress blogs […]
