I already thought about remote conferences last year and it seems like it’s becoming a reality with all those canceled conferences now only taking place online. Although it is not for environmental reasons (but rather to protect people), it may show some organizers that remote conferences are perhaps not such a bad alternative. It just needs to be technically well implemented and it will take a few less flights.
When I write code, it often serves the purpose it is supposed to serve. However, it is often not the most elegant. Especially when I compare my code with other implementations, I sometimes find mine somewhat ugly. I think I’m thinking too chaotic, start writing the code immediately and while I’m writing it, I think of things I could do differently and in the end it’s a big mess. Maybe I should first sketch my code on paper and then type it into the computer without thinking much about it? Or are these just feelings of inferiority and my code is not so bad after all?
