Activators Share Multi-Cultural Lunch

By Angie Hirata, September 2, 2011

Here at ActiveState, we have a pretty diverse, multi-cultural group of staff. Whether born in Canada, the US, or abroad, we have many nationalities represented on our team. Part of what makes collaboration and conversations so interesting!

So today, a few of us got together for an international potluck lunch, where we shared dishes from our country of origin. Here are some of the delectable dishes that we shared (clockwise from bottom left in the picture):

By Ingy döt Net, August 24, 2011

YAPC::EU ActiveState SponsorI had the absolute pleasure of attending YAPC::Europe in Riga, Latvia last week.

O HAI, BTW! I'm Ingy döt Net, ActiveState's latest recruit for the Stackato project. I also am a long time Perl hacker (this was my 15th or so YAPC; I lost count) and former ActiveState employee from 2000-2001. I'm glad to be back at ActiveState, but where were we. Oh right, YAPC...

OSCON 2011 Wrap-up: Cloudy with lots of Data

By Diane Mueller, August 1, 2011

Once again, the journey to the lovely city of Portland for OSCON 2011 was definitely worth the trip. Kudos to O'Reilly for combining OSCON, with OSCON Data and OSCON Java bringing an even wider variety of communities to the Open Source conversation. For me, the inclusion of the Data stream made the trip worthwhile.

Recollections of YAPC::NA 2011

By Jan Dubois, July 28, 2011

I was at YAPC::NA in late June. I should have written a summary about it a long time ago, but I wanted to include a link to the video of my Stackato Lightning Talk. That has not been put up on the web yet, but it should eventually appear at http://www.presentingperl.org/.

There were many interesting things at YAPC::NA, but here are the things I still remember one month later. I guess that makes them some kind of personal highlights.

By Sheila Rebellato, July 1, 2011

One of our Senior Developers, Gisle Aas, just got back from EuroPython 2011. He suffered through the pain of being in Italy in the spring (really, who wants to be in Florence as the flowers are blooming? :) ) and wanted to share his thoughts on the event.
