New digs

Got moved to another building at work. Nice view from the balcony.

Here’s the one I started in.

And my favorite part:


PyCon 2018

This is, I think, my fourth? San Jose, Montreal and now Cleveland. Always a great conference and lots of enthusiastic and friendly people. The talks were a bit less expert than I’d like but it is 60% first timers now. City was good, lots of nice buildings downtown and green compared to home.

Public art is always nice.

I did the PyLadies auction again, thanks Greg for taking me in Montreal! Social anxiety is a problem and friendship helps.

Overall good. Lots of companies looking for Python developers.
