The next 2 days, #bitreich community have its third annual conference: bitreichcon 2019.
If you are interested in it, visit gopher://bitreich.org/1/con/2019
I'll have a talk at 13h00 (GMT+2/CEST time) about "Simple solutions", and at 14h00, someone will have a talk about my deployment software "drist" (I can't wait to hear what it's about).
If you don't have any access to a #gopher client (it's sad), you can still read the page here https://gopherproxy.meulie.net/bitreich.org/1/con/2019
