After attending three days of Internet of Things (IoT) talks at ThingMonk 2016, and having never formally learned anything about IoT, I wanted to share some interesting tidbits and gems I heard at the conference…
Rachel and I are “getting away” for the Thanksgiving holiday (and taking our first official vacation together in over a year).
The following is the rememberance I shared with everyone at Alex’s Celebration of Life service (about his life in Denver) on October 8th, 2015.
Last week I attended one of my favorite conferences: The Monktoberfest: the developer conference where social meets technology. This was the fifth year and I’ve attended all five. Hats off to my friends, the organizers, for keeping it consistently great.
Rachel and I packed up and spent six months in Portland, Maine this past fall and winter. In case you missed it: we had two opportunities to see a lot of the country we hadn’t before (driving out east and driving back home). We also made the most of a very snowy winter and kept running, skiing, and hiking.
When looking back on the past year I’ve realized what a fun, crazy, busy and privileged life I lead in 2014. I consider myself very lucky to have the experiences and opportunities I’ve had: I started working for GitHub, Rachel and I enjoyed some great trips together, and we temporarily moved across the country from Denver to Portland, Maine…
This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of speaking at Develop Denver, a local conference for designers and developers in the community. If you’re interested, I posted my slides on Speaker Deck.
I’ve recently realized two seemingly harmless expressions may unintentionally continue to shape our thoughts to disenfranchise great groups of individuals.
