As long time readers will now I have long been a fan of open source and in my current role I get lab I get the chance to support a really cool open source project called Meltano. I recently got the chance to go to Denver to attend Meltano’s first off site called Meltano Assemble.￼
Prior to this, I had only interacted with these folks via zoom, which is fine because that’s how I work every day but it’s still nice to meet people in person. I had met some of them at the last GitLab Contribute, but meeting everyone and working with them in the same space was so special to me.￼
We saw beautiful Colorado views, ate lots of tacos, brainstormed world takeover, made pizza and had so much other fun. I will say I’m glad I don’t live some place where it snows but it was cute to enjoy a little bit of snow while there.
If you’re looking for a good tool to explore, Meltano.com is the way to go.
I just finished reading The Phoenix Project. The Unicorn Project is the sequel. I’m reading it for work, and it is good!
Thank you iPhone for looking out for the well being of my marriage 🥰
I have a pretty routine scheduled, so I don’t edit my alarms day to day. I almost forgot to turn off my early alarms for Thanksgiving.
We had a pretty chill Thanksgiving planned with a couple friends.
On the morning of, we had to get a couple of last minute things figured out. Getting this Settlers of Catan game was an adventure in itself, but I’m so glad we did! We loved playing it. We now also have the expansion pack!
A feast was had not just by us but also by Bo!
Simple but wonderful. These are my wedding plates, but we didn’t break out the china.
I made the cheese plate. I was very proud of it. I think it came out beautiful.
Our friends the Parsons were wonderful company. We had way too much food. We played Settlers of Catan and Risk. I’m not allowed to play Risk usually but in this case I won so it was okay, haha.
All around a great day.
