In February 2018 I…

  • started working remotely from anywhere on this planet full time! This is HUGE. I even gave up my apartment back in Germany and I am now full time vagabond ;)
  • stayed connected with good friends, this will be always be super important to me whilst I am traveling.
  • updated an project from hapijs v16 to v17, promisify all the things!
  • already finished filing taxes for 2017.
  • wrote a bunch of api route tests during that upgrade, never deploy anything without tests.
  • started a new project with Node.js/CouchDB/Vue.js/Docker: Let’s see where this goes (currently in closed beta, if you need a simple Slack standup but… just drop me a note ;)).
  • set up a production deployment that goes from git push to production in less than five minutes. always deliver!
  • hiked up to Lions Head in Cape Town and watched a beautiful sunset.
  • went to visit the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. African art seems to be highly influenced by the topics violence and suffering :(
  • got my yellow fever shot for future travels.
  • upgraded to an iPhone X from my old 6. much photos, such quality!
  • bought all-wooden sunglasses from Bello in Cape Town, because the plastic ones keep on breaking
  • visited the Automattic office in Cape Town a few times. Thanks for having me!
