Chrome Dev Summit, a flashback to the good days of Google I/O

Three weeks ago I attended Chrome Dev Summit 15 down at Google offices in Mountain View, and what an experience! It’s the third year Google is running Chrome Dev Summit, and this year you could really feel that the event is a new priority for Google.

Joining Microsoft, and relocating to Vancouver in Canada

It’s now almost a year ago I decided to leave Citrix and take a break. Back in December 2014 there wasn’t any bigger plan, other than I needed a break to reflect how I should be spending my time going forward.

Rebooting Prototype, our hacker-cafe in Copenhagen

Prototype started when Jacob, back in April 2014, asked if I was interested sharing an office. He had gotten the opportunity to take over the coffee shop, Min Nye Kaffebar, and convert it into an office. Without much consideration I immediately said yes, as I had been looking for an office/hackerlab, to run experiments like Helpmate.

Stepping down as CopenhagenJS organizer

Back in December I decided to quit my job and take a leap into unexplored territories. I ended up packing a backpack to travel Asia, which has been an amazing experience, but it also meant that I haven’t been able to help organizing CopenhagenJS, as I simply haven’t been around.

Now I’m back in Copenhagen, and been putting a bit of thought into how I should be spending my time going forward, and I reached the conclusion that it’s time to step down as CopenhagenJS organizer and pass the baton on.

Safari isn’t the problem, but the lack of browser choice in iOS is.

Recently there has a been a lot of debate wether Safari is the new IE, or Apple simply is building a user-centric web, but I think that removes focus from the real problem.

The problem isn’t Safari. It’s a somewhat modern browser that in the eyes of some might lack some important features, but overall is still pretty good and modern.
