Mastodon is great but just don't use it for DMs, there is no end-to-end encryption and @nvk can read everything
1) I'm learning and teaching, pro bono in a meetup and for profit in schools
2) learning to code (Python for now), my goal is to contribute to bitcoin related project (I'm working on EPS now)
3) I'd like to do some consulting, but it's kinda hard in France now
Yes I was very pleased to meet you too, even if we didn't have the occasion to speak that much (too many people in this kind of conf 😀 )
See you soon!
