Export Plone to PDFs

Since many years ago, we've had a private installation of Plone in Niteo that we call Intra. Short for “intranet”. It is meant to hold our company-wide, non-project-specific documents. I.e. financial reports, internal newsletters, various guides, and internal policies. But as of 2017, we moved most of these documents to our public Handbook, so the wider community can benefit from…

Four meetups in three days

This past week has been quite eventful for me! On Monday, I was still in Lanzarote, enjoying the summer-like weather and beautifully glassy swell from the West. After a sunrise surf on Tuesday, we boarded the plane and headed back to Ljubljana for the real fun to start. FIRE meetup Last year I founded a small, somewhat private, community of…

A month of travel

The last couple of weeks I've had another bout of traveling to conferences. I've been lucky this time: all three events were absolutely amazing! First I went to the Google Summer of Code Mentors' Summit in California, followed by Wordcamp Bucharest and finally to Tokyo for the annual Plone Conf. GSoC Mentor's Summit GSoC is a decade old programme by…

GopherConUK

While part of the dev team was still on EuroPython, Janez and I were packing to go to this year's Go conference in London. This was a first Go conference for me, so naturally, I enjoyed it a lot. The vibe was similar to those old Plone/Python conferences back around 2010. Lots of very smart people, everyone super friendly, great…

Attending this conference really feels different from the other non-German conferences. The conference is organised and prepared with German precision. Everything was taken care of and the only thing you need to think…

Resuming uploads to Amazon S3

I am escaping continental winter at the moment which means my internet connection is not perfect. I was uploading a 1GB file to Amazon S3 via the console.aws.amazon.com and the upload failed at 93%. Just my luck! I didn’t want this to happen again. So I tried using Cyberduck to upload and intentionally turned off WiFi after a few seconds…

IRL#4: Istanbul

Last month we again held our biannual in-person gathering of all Niteans, the IRL. As is customary, we meet somewhere warm for the winter edition of the event. This year we chose Istanbul, Turkey. A stunning city with millennia of heritage. We’ve gotten good at running IRLs so this one was by far the most productive. We’ve done several improvements…
