Weekly Notes 05/2023

I finally upgraded my main laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. I had to disable some Debian repositories before I started the dist upgrade. But in the end, all went well. I would say I don’t like the fact that it installs snaps by default. Most of my installations are based on Flathub, pipx, jbang or binary files these days.

Weekly Notes 04/2023

I was invited to BuzzWomen’s all-hands meetup. One of their long-term employees used the word “ಕಾಳಜಿ” (Kāḷaji) as a reason for being loyal to BuzzWomen. The direct translation is “concern,” but it’s more like care + kindness + concern. I love the usage of the word. One will work for a long time for an organization that shows “ಕಾಳಜಿ”. I am happy that BuzzWomen is one such organization.


Weekly Notes 03/2023

We are back in Bangalore. It’s cold coming from Thrissur. Thrissur was, in fact, pleasant this time of the year. I also noticed the filter in my air purifier had changed color, so I had to replace it. Not only that, I got another air purifier from Ikea for A’s office. Air pollution in Bangalore is a real problem.

Weekly Notes 02/2023

One big rule we follow at Peppo team is – Be Nice to each other and everyone with whom you work. It makes a lot of difference. If you look at DataMeet’s code of conduct. It’s the first rule. I sincerely believe in it and take it wherever I go. We can’t build organizations or teams without being nice to each other. When I see broken teams, most often than not, this is the rule that would have made a difference. Whats your one rule while working in a team?
