CodeOne 2019

CodeOne 2019 has officially started for me this year. A cup of Java before flying.

This year is kinda special for me as I’ll be presenting a Hands-on Lab about Docker at the conference. I am really psyched about it.

In this blog I will tell about my experiences

The journey begins

Our journey will not bring us directly to San Francisco, but to Las Vegas. We have a nice road trip planned before the conference.

Good company is always 👍

It is weird that we will land just two hours later than that we departed and still have flown about 11 hours. Will try to sleep some. I’m lucky because the middle seat of my row is empty so I have all the room I need for my long legs ✊.

Las Vegas

Sorry, but what happens in Vegas stays… 🤣. Nope just forgot to take many pictures…

Walked the strip, ate some food and drank some 🍺. It was all good :-)

Tomorrow we will head to the Hover dam and The Grand Canyon with our minivan.

Road trip - day 1

Yeah we just had to stop here…

Before going to here:

The Grand Canyon

I’ve been there before and when you have to pay $55,= to get in it hurts a bit, but then you are again confronted with something so grand and just plain impressive and you don’t care anymore.

Wow just amazing.

The trip back was a big one. We still had to drive about 4 hours excluding stops. We ate at a nice diner. Where some beer 🍺 was partaken by some which made the evening fun. I drove so that was stupid of me 🤪. The last part of the trip was in full dark and was at a time that would have been around the time I normally would get up to go to work. Yes we were all beat. We went straight to bed.

The Amargosa Opera House hotel we stayed can be generously called classic but I would call it old and ready for a major overhaul. In the bathtub we found some cockroaches and well Hmmm…

We slept great though because we were just plain tired.

Today we have Death Valley on the agenda and I am really looking forward to it.
