Happy belated New Year dear friend,
I hope 2022 is treating you better, than its nasty cousins 2020 and 2021! Last time I was wondering where Omicron will take us and so far, it looks promising! While almost everybody I know had it (or have it – get well soon George!), Berlin has already peaked and I’m fully-booked for PyCon US in Salt Lake City and PyCon Italia in my beloved Florence, and I’m writing this to you to procrastinate on packing for Cabo Verde – my first trip outside of the EU since 2019.
As for conferences, I won’t write a regular talk this year (that’s something I decided last year, given the uncertainties and the work I put into my talks), but my friend Christian has tricked me into agreeing to give a lightning talk about Don’t mock what you don’t own. after shitposting about it. Might get good!
I certainly hope that conference season 2023 will allow me to return to the stages in more profound ways. I have some interesting ideas lined up.
