It's been a little over six years since I first ventured to Kraków, Poland. I have fond memories of that trip, mostly because Trish was with me and we explored lots of sites. Last month, I visited Kraków for GeeCON, but only stayed for one night.
Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting a third time for my first Devoxx Poland. I was excited to travel internationally again with my favorite travel shirt on. This caused a funny conversation with TSA just before my departure.
I arrived in Krakow on a beautiful day and took an Ubër to my hotel next to the venue. I took a stroll along the Vistula River to enjoy the sunshine.
I attended the conference happy hour that evening, then journeyed to a local restaurant for some delicious food and fun conversations. There's a chance one of those conversations inspires a speaking tour in South Africa next year.
On Thursday, I attended a couple sessions on application and microservices security, and delivered my talk on PWAs with Ionic, Angular, and Spring Boot. You can check out my presentation below or on Speaker Deck.
I was amazed at the sheer size of Devoxx Poland! Not only was the venue massive, but its 2500 attendees filled it up quickly. Thursday evening was the speaker's dinner, on a boat no less! It was a great location, with lots of familiar faces.

I also wrote an article for scotch.io titled "The Ultimate Guide to Progressive Web Applications."
If I don't see you on the rivers in Montana or at an upcoming conference, I hope you have a great summer!
