New Mic Who DIS

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Eighteen]

I’m giving a talk next week with Software Circus and I could not be more SQUEEE.

I saw them back in June when they did an Alice in Wonderland theme and it was just BRILLIANT.

I think every sentence in this post is going to end with all CAPS.

But first the news:

The conference itself is around cloud infra thingsess, but then they have a theme that they absolutely embrace from the speakers to the tracks to the talks to the marketing to the social events – and next week the theme is HORROR.

If you know me, you know I’m ludicrously STOKED.

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Sixty Five]

I heard a new phrase yesterday – $TITLE – and it made me laugh so hard that I wrote it down.

It means engaging in emptyboastful talk, but not of real substance.

Thx, A!

But first the news:

Really, I should write a script to pull those in, but I do it by hand, because #YOLO

Apparently, today’s post is sponsored by all the wonderful interactions with my colleagues yesterday.

Tomorrow! Morning! OpenStack! On! Packet!

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Five]

Two weeks ago I was on vacation and not really doing the technical stream thing except then I had a look over the OpenStack on Packet repository, ended up auditing the entire README.md, making a series of pull request, became an official collaborator on the project and said I’d be running it the following week.

And then it was hot.

But first the news:

So hot, in fact, that I did not one single stream, vlog, or recording for the entire eight day heatwave.

But!

Tomorrow!

Morning!

At 0900 GMT!

On Twitch and YouTube and Twitter!! !

And I set up a couple of new visuals for this one. Can you tell I’m excited? Wanna see?
