This Week in Spring - August 8th, 2023

Engineering | Josh Long | August 08, 2023 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I'm baaaaack in the USA for the first time in more than two months, and it feels great to be home!

I just concluded a tour of Asia, visiting

  • Taipei, Taiwan
  • Sydney, and the Blue Mountains, in Australia
  • Seoul, S. Korea
  • Singapore
  • Jakarta and Bali, Indonesia
  • Kuala Lumpur, Bali, and Penang, Malaysia
  • Tokyo, Japan

i did public appearances in most of these cities, and it was a lot of fun. Thank you everyone that came out, and I can't wait to see you again soon!

I feel like I time-traveled. You remember during lockdown there was that odd sense of being stuck in March of 2020? Or perhaps earlier in some countries? I sorta feel like that. I'm back in San Francisco, and it feels like early June and we've got the whole summer ahead. But we don't, do we? It was a fun summer, but I want to make the best use of the dwindling few days in summer as I can!

And on that note, my friends, we've got a lot to get into this week, and - if I'm honest - I'm feeling a little clumsy on my desktop ergonomic keyboard after months of using my laptop keyboard exclusively - so let's dive right into it!
