Hack.lu 2019 – Day (2)

The second day of Hack.lu is often the longest since it includes the social events at the end which can go on well into the night. This day was no different, it started early in the morning and ended just before ten o’clock. I was exhausted when I arrived back at my accommodation but it was totally worth it.

Trying Apple Pay

Last week I got a new card from an awesome bank, I use it for almost every purchase mainly because it has a great categorization system that allows me to track my expenses simply and easily. One of the things their app recommended is adding my card to the Apple Wallet so I can use it for contactless payments via Apple Pay, so I did that. Surprisingly, I never used the function itself for a week or two but that change yesterday.
