It is seems to be conference season in Silicon Valley now. The big JavaOne is almost here and to get everyone ready Sun set up the CommunityOne conference. This was mainly a one day event there was something yesterday (on Sunday) but very little.
The CommunityOne is free and is dedicated to open source. It left me no excuse for missing it. Well, I didn’t:
I should say it was more interesting than Web 2.0 Expo. Less buzz more technical stuff. Overall I’m very satisfied. Plus I’ve got a nice t-shirt with opensource mascot patterns:
Recently I’ve been playing around with Tableau it’s a nice little photo gallery. Actually I decided to set it up on my laptop because I needed to share my photos. The reason I didn’t use filckr or anything similar is that I have too many photos to share, so I think my internet would die uploading giant chunks of photos :)
But! It turned out to be not a very simple task. The gallery was developed on a Mac and as it came out, a web application that runs on mac won’t necessarily run on Windows :)))
Most problems where caused by differences in the new line and tab characters.
Finally I’ve got it running :)
But I’m too lazy to add all these photos one by one, so I’ll have to modify it little bit. Unfortunately no time to do that yet :/
Yeah! I’ve just finished reading that weired book on Ruby!
The reason I’m so happy is that I’ve finally managed to read a book on computer programming from cover to cover :)
