The reason I spend so much time in the US is being invited to come here 10 years ago by Dave and Karen Studebaker, founders of Liberty Grove Software. After retirement they moved from Chicago to Ellison Bay, Wisconsin and after NAVUG Focus I took a local flight and spend the weekend with them.
We had an amazing time catching up and I always appreciate using Dave’s almost 60 yearlong computer science experience to run new stuff like events and extensions and hear how things we perceive as “new” reflect to challenges he faced during the 70’s or 80’s.
This trip makes me realise how special it is to turn your hobby into work and share what you know with your peers and learn new things while you do that. I have made some great friends over the years.
Now I am in the train back home. Next on the agenda is a workshop for LS Retail about Extensions for Madeira. First online and onsite in September in Iceland. It is very special to be able to do a workshop about a product which is in development.
