Launching RemotePython.com: A job board and aggregator for remote Python jobs (and only remote Python jobs)

January 4, 2017

I recently launched RemotePython.com, a job board specifically for remote Python jobs. I aimed to release it on January 1 and was actually able to make it in time. There were a few minor last minute bugs I had to fix before the launch, but overall it went pretty well.

I started the project as I'm a freelance Python developer who can only work remotely due to my "digital nomad" lifestyle and constantly ...

RemotePython.com Progress Report

December 24, 2016

I started development of RemotePython.com, a job board/aggregator for finding remote Python jobs and developers, towards the end of November. Just almost a month later, I'm happy to announce that I'm about 90% done with the site. I've logged around 66 hours of development time so far.

The site is of course built with Python, using the Django web framework. I also made sure I took advantage of the latest ...

Remote Python Jobs and Only Remote Python Jobs

For some time now, I had been thinking of building a Python job board/aggregator specifically for remote Python jobs. Part of the reason is to scratch my own itch. I'm a freelance Python/Django developer and only available for a remote working arrangement as I like living in different cities around the world. I typically change cities every 1-3 months.

Since I'm always on the lookout for remote Python jobs anyway, I ...

Short stop in the US

September 13, 2016

I'm currently back in the US after being away for over a year. I plan to be home for only two weeks and then I'm off to Mexico, where I plan to spend the rest of the year.

It's funny how nothing really changed in that 1+ year period. Everything still looks and feels familiar. Even driving around feels so natural, despite the fact that I haven't driven a car since ...

Working from a 24-hour manga cafe in Kyoto, Japan

Popeye Media Cafe - Kyoto, Japan

I decided to spend a week in Kyoto a few weeks ago before leaving South Korea as it was only an hour flight away. I had client work to do that week and since my client is 14 hours behind and the apartment I was staying in wasn't really comfortable to work in, I had to look for 24-hour cafes to work from.

One option is the 24-hour McDonald's and I did work ...

ASUS Zenbook UX305LA 13.3-Inch Ultrabook with Ubuntu 14.04 Review

December 27, 2015

I finally replaced my 3-year-old Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook about 3 weeks ago with this cheaper ASUS Zenbook UX305LA model.

I originally intended to replace it with the newer developer edition of the XPS 13 line but then I found out a couple of days after I placed my order that an even newer model with a newer generation CPU that's more efficient and a faster SSD was just released. The newer edition also ...

Working from cafes in Daegu, South Korea

December 22, 2015

I've been in Daegu, South Korea for just over 3 weeks now and all I've done here so far is work from cafes. The last few weeks had been very busy for me as my business partner and I wrap up our SaaS app. Plus I still have my regular freelance gig as well, which actually made South Korea for me a good place to be.

I was in Manila, Philippines before coming ...
