I had to buy a Domestic Object which was quite stressful. I got sick, which sucked, so my last day in Medellin I just stayed inside drinking a lot of tea. Then, I flew to London where I’ve been catching up with friends.
Super intense week, at the end of which a bunch of things weren’t going to plan, which was stressful. Extra stressful: trying to deal with that kind of stuff at an airport when you’ve barely eaten in 48 hours. I think things worked out, though, because my team are awesome.
My Architecture of Open Source, 500 Lines or Less book chapter on image processing is finally up!! So happy that I never have to read it again.
Recorded another podcast, excited for this one to come out!
A new edition of Technically Speaking is out.
I sent a Where the Hell is Cate letter from MDE.
