A couple of days ago DZone published an article called 9 Things Java Programmers Should Learn in 2018. I liked the idea and I even recommended the article to a couple of colleagues who are trying to reorient their professional career. After the advice I added some personal disclaimers about the content, to the point that one of my friends wisely told me: "if you don't agree with these recommendations, why don't you write your own article?"
...and that brought us here :-)

Some months ago I wrote in the blog about my road trip through the Romantikstraße in Austria. I shared the trip with Agatha and it went great, so we took advantage of the fact that we both had several pending holidays for this year and repeated the experience in two of the most beautiful regions in France: Normandy and Brittany. This post will be a summary of our experience in Normandy and hopefully I'll be able to write a similar one for Brittany.

Last week I attended Big Data Spain, a renowned event focused particularly on Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. It's a reference event about Big Data, not only in Spain but across Europe. The event is almost entirely held in English and attracts top level speakers and public.

I couldn't take a lot of notes, but I'll summarize the talks that deserve your attention

For many different reasons I have had to discuss quite a lot recently about the professionalism of some people. Sometimes, because a person feels that she (I will use the feminine as neutral gender) is not being treated fairly with respect of her category, or because her performance is disappointing for others, sometimes after unfair comparisons between colleagues, ... As a common element, a diabolical concept was almost always being misused in these situations: Seniority

As you probably know, we are celebrating the XXX Anniversary of ARP-SAPC with a special event this next Saturday (Sep 30th) with Alfonso López Borgoñoz (@lopezborgonoz). As an addition to this celebration, a week later we'll be honoured to host a Skeptics in the Pub Madrid special event with Susan Gerbic.

Last week I had the huge pleasure to participate in a week-long Security Summer Camp organized by the Information Security department of ING Spain. The agenda was very promising and implied some theory and lots of practice, ending with an Escape the Room game and a 2,5 days long Capture The Flag competition. Several speakers from the Infosec Squad prepared talks and workshops about different topics, focusing on Ethical Hacking, secure development, server hardening or OSINT.

Our fourth stage started in Gästehaus Lauterbacher, a splendid guesthouse in Neumarkt am Wallersee. Quite off our route because we couldn't find anything affordable in Mondsee. We wanted a good place to rest after a hard day 3, and Lauterbacher was more than good. The place itself was nice and the owners were marvellous with us. I'll seriously consider returning to this place if I ever come back to the region.
And thus it began the most awaited stage.
