We received our first LEARN SOMETHING NEW TEAM CHALLENGE submission. Thank you for participating, Mirek.

Current Situation or Problem: I live in London, UK and commute to work in Rome, Italy. Spending a lot of time on EasyJet flights where you can’t open your laptop and work as the seats are too close to each other, even the ones by the emergency exits – I could use this time on reading source code, updating documentation and submitting small changes to my projects using Git on iPad.
