PyCon SK 2019

Last time I've written about PyCon was in in 2016, when it came to Slovakia for the first time. I have attended every year since, and if I was impressed then, I have to say each subsequent year was better than the one before it.It always covers a bevy of topics, from Python to machine learning, various projects people are working on, best practices in architecture, social and societal impacts of technology (people from slovensko.digital always make an appearance) and more. I especially appreciate the tracks about teaching and education, since that topic interests me a lot and,...

Running Huginn with Docker

While one could argue I could have paid to fix some of those problems, I didn't want to. The only restriction that really bothered me was the two-device limit. I had no use for more space or extra features: in the 5+ years...
