Love Revival #railsgirlslj

December 17th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

On Friday started first edition of Rails Girls Ljubljana, a workshop about Ruby on Rails. After Friday’s installation party, on Saturday started the real fun. Checking on css, html and “the real code” again, reminded me, what was the most exciting and fun part of my job in the web industry – playing in the lines, playing with the code!

Gikica Gitica

December 11th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

Brigita Jergović Jurić – Gitica, rojena Verčkovnik  (1936), je ena od prvih Jugoslovank, ki so sedle za računalnike. Profesorico so gimnazijci speljali na kriva pota, tako da je v 70-ih matematiko zamenjala za računalnike. Malo je programirala, največ in najraje pa je izobraževala uporabnike poslovnih, knjigovodskih in turističnih CRM-aplikacij. V tednu, ko bi rojstni dan praznovala Ada Lovelace, znana kot prva programerka, in v času, ko se rojeva ljubljanska skupnost Rails Girls, objavljam delčke intervjuja, ki sva ga z Gitico posneli na družinskem srečanju februarja letos v Mariboru. « Read the rest of this entry »

Protestiram

November 27th, 2012 § 4 Comments

Demonstracije, ki so se včeraj ponovno zgodile v Mariboru, podžigajo toliko misli, da sem se jih nekaj odločila zapisati. Žulijo me, a jih kljub temu težko izrečem, saj je situacija zelo kompleksna. Pisati skušam kritično, tako kot mislim, na podlagi tega, kar vidim. « Read the rest of this entry »

Pred petimi leti sem zapisala eno o predsedniških volitvah in premierju

October 11th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

Medtem ko sem iskala recept za slivove cmoke iz krompirjevega testa, sem naletela na svojo kolumnico izpred petih let, objavljeno v velenjskem tedniku Naš čas. V njej izpihana jeza me je spomnila na letošnjo predsedniško tekmo. 5 let je minilo. Se je kaj spremenilo? « Read the rest of this entry »

Sailing in The NYC

September 20th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

We were sailing with the Schooner America 2.0 last Thursday. Schooner America 2.0 is remake of the boat, that won first America’s Cup trophy back in 1851. She seems to be the pride of Manhattan sailing fleet – 105 feet and 3600 square feet of sail! « Read the rest of this entry »

My Private TV-Show

September 5th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

With 31 I was ripe enough to visit the NYC. It happened after some months of my life, where change and work were one of the seldom constants of my living. The stressy’n’messy (but also awesome!) period ended with an ugly cold, that has been upgraded to bronchitis as soon as we landed in the USA: Sunday’s sprints at the Boston airport to catch connecting flight to the JFK airport and then Monday’s rushing through Manhattan subway stations haven’t done any good to me.

Saturdaying Upgraded

May 6th, 2012 § Leave a Comment

Lying in bed at noon on Sunday confirms more than successful planning of this saturdaying. What is saturdaying? Slovenian word for it would be sobotkanje and my suggestion for German dictionaries is Samstagern (in Switzerland there is a village with this hip name). This very special weekend mode can include as many of  your favourite activities as you like it or it can consist of 100-percent of doing nothing. Anything and everything, as long as you are enjoying yourself without having a second thought on your general life-work concerns. « Read the rest of this entry »
