San Francisco, November 2016

San Francisco, November 2016

This visit to San Francisco was one of my busier visits. But in summary:

Swift Summit Speaker Dinner

It was great to hang out with some old friends, and meet some more people from the internet.

It was lovely to meet the remainder of the fellow remote engineers and related memebers of the team. They are lovely and supportive and kind.

It was however, a difficult trip for my mental health - with the election, and a lot of community "discourse" about CocoaPods which caused me to briefly leave Twitter, and more permanently abandon some Slack communities.

Favourite Thing

One of my colleagues introduced me to the concept of fire spinning and I think I might be a little bit hooked already. I've only tried using LED Poi so far, but I'm excited to find a local community in Berlin and to work up to using fire Poi.
