Supper
Happy Dev
House
is "a premier
monthly hackathon event
that combines serious and
not-so-serious productivity
with a fun and exciting party
atmosphere
."



The 30th
monthly event
was hosted at Sun Microsystem's Executive
Briefing Center (aka EBC) in Menlo Park. During my short stay at Dev
House, all the key characteristics of "productivity" and "party
atmosphere" were indeed evident. This was the biggest Dev House in it's
history. My previous visits to EBC have been for formal customer
presentations. And the Dev House gathering turned the EBC into a very
lively environment :)



I gave a href="http://superhappydevhouse.org/SHDH30-Lightning-Talks">lightning
talk (for 5 minutes) on Rails/Merb powered by href="http://glassfish.org">GlassFish/ href="http://netbeans.org">NetBeans. The key
messages were:

  • JRuby - "It's just Ruby!" with passing over 55,000
    compliance tests and continuous performance improvements.
  • NetBeans - light-weight and intuitive IDE for Rails
    development/deployment
  • GlassFish - robust deployment environment for Rails/Merb
    applications

The demo showed in the talk is available as href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/screencast_26_develop_run_debug">screencast
#26 and href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/totd_53_scaffold_in_merb">TOTD
#53. Sharat posted a recording of my talk and is included
below:
