Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Devoxx Poland: A Huge Conference in a Beautiful City

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.

A beautiful day in Krakow

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.

Friday, I spoke about What's New in JHipsterLand. My presentation can be viewed below or on Speaker Deck. You can download the PDF from Speaker Deck for clickable links.

In other news, I've been busy writing blog posts for the @OktaDev blog.

I also wrote an article for titled "The Ultimate Guide to Progressive Web Applications."

For the next couple of weeks, I'll be on vacation in Montana. Then it's time for ÜberConf, vJUG (with Josh Long!), and Oktane17.

If I don't see you on the rivers in Montana or at an upcoming conference, I hope you have a great summer!
