WordCamp US in Nashville was super fun. Met a whole lot of cool developers, customers and fellow Automatticians.
Dinner at Martin’s Bar-B-Que
Even got to visit my spiritual home. Sadly, the Preds weren’t in town though.
Definitely looking forward to visiting again sometime. See you next year in St Louis!
The Hot tenders at Prince’s.
Verdict: Prince’s. They were both excellent
hot chicken, but as a piece of fried chicken Prince’s was better.
Rails Camps are one of my favourite things, which explains why this most recent one was my seventh in three-ish years, and the second I’ve co-organised.
There’s just something about getting away from civilisation, spending some time with good humans, hacking away on a project, and playing Werewolf all night.
This time around I even gave a talk, which was received well enough that I’m going to give it some polish and see what happens.
Ruby Australia has its general meeting and elections at Rails Camps, and this one marked the end of my tenure as President. I wish the new committee all the best and know they’ll do an amazing job.
And now, to sleep.
Watching cats sleep is fine, but watching humans sleep is creepy 🤔
(Not all at once. But watch this space.)
The actual Space Shuttle Atlantis ❤️
More like brothers than friends.
24 hours too late to see the last game of the season.
Why, yes. Yes I am.
Brisbane, you pretty.
Listen to this, and one day you’ll be able to say “oh yeah, I was listening to her before she got famous”.
I’ve been shopping around for a new travel bag, and I’d pretty much decided on the
Tortuga Setout Backpack… then I read this article and was definitely sold:
Tortuga’s team is distributed, meaning that everyone sets their own hours and chooses where to live and work. In effect, that means that as long as they have access to Wi-Fi, Team Tortuga can travel nonstop.
sounds familiar 😄
Now the only question is whether I can get it before the Grand Meetup in late September. Living in Australia is great until you need to buy things on the internet 😭
