Update: I will unable to be in Yurp the entire month of February due to some changes in my work schedule :(
With low temperatures throughout the northern hemisphere, one might be tempted to steal away to a warmer climate for a few weeks. A reasonable thought, by no doubt reasonable people. Brazil, Australia, Iran, all decent options with decent "winter" weather. That's not for me however, I'll be taking what my friend Thomson would call the "comedy option": Europe. Just as I did last year, I will be returning to Europe for the month of February.
The make-up of the trip will be slightly different than last year's, wherein I spent the majority of the trip working from Berlin. This year I will be starting my trip with a weekend in Brussels for FOSDEM '14 where I will be running the Testing/Automation devroom with Jeff Weiss.
Following FOSDEM '14, I plan on swinging up to Gent for Cfg Mgmt Camp to make fun of my peers in the Ops community for a couple days.
After I leave Belgium, things get a little fuzzy and less defined unfortunately. While I will be spending about two weeks at the Lookout office in London, I'm not yet certain which days I'll be there.
I will however be finishing my trip on a strong note, attending Mobile World Congress, Feb 24-27th in Barcelona. This year's MWC will be great, not only because I'll be in attendance but also due to Lookout's CEO John Hering giving a keynote.
If you're in any of the following cities, and interested in meeting up, let me know via email and I can let you know when I've figured out a more definite schedule:
I'm looking forward to doing as much as I can, and meeting up with as many peoplke as possible without succumbing to frostbite or cirrhosis of the liver.
See you in Yurp!
