N.T. Wright in Cluj

NT Wright and his translator

N.T. Wright, one of the world’s leading New Testament scholars and an expert on Pauline theology, was invited by Edictum Dei to hold a conference in Cluj last week. I found out about it the day before, when there were already no more tickets available. But, I persisted, asked around and managed to find some friends who could lend me some, so I went to the first session, out of three.

The first topic was based on his book “The Day the Revolution Be­gan”ti­tle case and in it, the professor explained the meaning and the power of the cross and how today, many people mis­un­der­stand it. continue.

Trip to Dublin

Samuel Beckett Bridge

Samuel Beckett Bridge

A month ago there was the first ever SRECon in Europe. It got together lots of SRE-like engineers (basically the people who are re­spon­si­ble for the software that is live, running in production) from Google (the host of the event), Facebook, Etsy, Splunk, SoundCloud and others. Because I'm an SRE, I had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to go there. With this occasion, I stayed two more days to have the chance to see Ireland and Dublin a bit more (yes, I know I'm terribly late with this post).
