I don’t normally live-blog – heck, I’m still several wrap ups behind at this point – but I thought I’d note down some thoughts live from the sprints, because I’m having an … interesting day.
Portland has had some amazing weather for most of the conference. It was windy af yesterday, and now it’s a touch brisk, so the hoodies are out again.
Sitting in a room with many many BeeWare sprinters, we are also sharing room with Mycroft - an open source AI. It was singing earlier. I have a video. I can’t upload it quite yet because bandwidth, but it’s amazing.
A nice person has just brought in savoury snacks. Including, something that is apparently “veggie straws” - processed and reformed vegetables, in a chip/crisp/straw form-factor. But there are also Cheezits, so that’s nice. I haven’t had the white chedder type before. They’re very more-ish.
It’s day three of the sprints, so it’s much quieter than the first two days. We gave away at least 20 Shaver coins on Day One, and quite a few Herder coins. Today, there’s been one or two coins already, but it’s been nice.
Evening events are much enjoyed opportunities to quietly hang out. I had some more first-time “American Food” last night, in the form of Hush Puppies.
People are slowly leaving. Making sure you can give them one last hug before they leave is a thing. It hurts to miss doing that. But most of us will see each other again soon, so we have that to look forward to.
0 - OMG the orange type of “Veggie Straws - Zesty Ranch” taste of Burgermen <3
