Posted by arjunghosh on December 23, 2008

Yeah I know its been long since I have been away. Well lot has happened between my last journey  through RubyOnRail’s universe from May 28,2008 to the current date. New Rails 2.0 screencast by Fabio Akita  which is unspired by the Creating a Weblog in 15 minutes the original screencast by David Hansson , Newer version of RubyOnRails (v 2.2.2) are out, Rails officially moved to GitHub and supports  Git as the VCS of choice, Rails thread safety is in (though how is that actually useful ?),  lot of nifty changes in Rails v2.2.  So all in all lot of things have been happening.

I will try to be more regular here. In mean time, everyone who twitter and in New Delhi, India can check out the twitter.com/rubyonraildelhi where I have been posting regular rubyonrail updates and local information. You can find me on twitter here at @arjunghosh.

BarCamp Delhi 3 – the (un)conferance – Part II

Posted by arjunghosh on December 8, 2007

An update. It now around 5:00 IST here at BarCamp delhi 3. Greg made us bluewhalers proud :)). Just had a bit dry presentation on testing. The days seems winding down. Now the important question is – Where is the Free beers as mentioned on the BarCamp wiki? Another thing was – there was no T-Shirts..:-)…at least I don’t see any given till now. But thats ok I guess…the guys who organized did a overall good job. Nice lunch :))

BarCamp Delhi 3 – the (un)conferance

Posted by arjunghosh on December 8, 2007

It seem its a great gathering on a saturday winter at BarCamp Delhi 3 this is being my first experience with at a barcamp.A great concept I would say, the barcamps or sometimes otherwise called un-conferences. They allow everyone to share ideas, new concepts and generally talk about technology. Which I think is great. It helps to develop and learn lot of new things. I came along with Vikram, Greg, Sushil and Manjula. Shikha could not make it though.

Well I will confess that I had some preconceived notions about what barcamp. Well some of it seem are genuine and some proved wrong. We had some great presentations like the one I liked on Amazon Web services like EC2, S3, Cloud Computing by the Jinesh Varia from Amazon. Also the one on Deployment of Amazon EC2 on Rails by Manik from Vinsol. And yes finally the great one by Greg on “Usability of Social Apps”. One thing though I observed that there was lot of marketing/self pitching. Well am not sure if that happens in all the barcamps. But hey, it is a great place for people networking. I personally met some great people here. So probably am cool with it. There was a blog specific talk going parallel in the cafeteria.It had focus on India and Indian bloggers.
