Thoughts on Hugo

posted earlier about moving from Blogger to Hugo and it has been a couple of months so I thought that I share my thoughts on how Hugo has been working out.

Upgrading from Fedora 24 to 25

Fedora 26 was released this month which starts the 1 month count down to Fedora 24 becoming unsupported in another month.
The steps to upgrading is very simple and going from 24 to 25 has been the easiest upgrade I’ve had. I even had to double check that I actually got upgraded to 25 after it rebooted since it was so seamless.
I originally planned to immediately upgrade to Fedora 26, but there was one package that wasn’t available in 26 so I’ll wait a few months for 26 to settle down and then upgrade.

My First GopherCon

Being a member of the Go team allowed me to attend my first GopherCon in Denver from July 13 to July 15. This is the 4th GopherCon to be held and previously I’ve only watched the recordings of the sessions on the Gopher Academy Youtube Channel.
