IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – November 2021

Dear IGEL Community,

It should have happened earlier already, but I crashed a Meetup… What do I mean by that? Even after hours of preparation for our live November IGEL Community Meetup, I had what I would call a brain crash… During the presentation I delivered to you folks, my Laptop died away with a BSOD, and my Virtual machine I used passed away with a Kernel Panic. What should I say? It was hard to recover after that. I know you get what kind of feelings I went through. I guess this happens to all of us. So, if you want to smile a bit, watch the Meetup recording with your family during Christmas dinner!


But we had great times besides that one. Let’s dig into them. November was a pretty tough month!

Let’s start:
