Lessons learned at Monkigras2017

I’m currently sitting in a bar at Heathrow Airport(London), drinking mint tea, pondering on life and listening to some music while typing random thoughts on my Nordic keyboard.

Every time a (brilliant) conference gets to the end I always think how lucky I am to have the chance to travel, meet and talk to and with people. It’s great. I always feel a better and wiser person after a conference.
Monkigras 2017 in London has been absolutely brilliant, not sure if I had more fun presenting or listening to everyone else sharing their thoughts on packaging.
Here’s a list of lessons learned during those 3 days in London:

  1. When crossing a road you should first look right and then left(this is number 1 because it’s a survival tip)
  2. Tin cans have been invented in 1811 and can opener has been invented 1855: weird
  3. Open source software is free like getting a free puppy: you still have to take care of it and feed it and clean up after it!
  4. Bubble wrap was originally intended to be used as wallpaper
  5. In software there are no recalls, just updates(naming is essential here)
  6. Don’t take your metaphors literally. Juliet is my sun does not mean she will also give you skin cancer
  7. In Italy we don’t put pasta into packaging, we put it in dishes: Dish As A Service

I’m also very impressed by the number of ladies present at the conference, for the first time in years I’ve seen a line for the ladies restroom!! Well done on diversity!
Can’t wait for the next Monkigras!
