Now if he would just implement a long tail archive…
A few years back I wrote some sql scripts to convert a Scoop-based community website (dialognow.org) to Drupal. I get occasional requests for these scripts, so here they are. No guarantees, and they are certainly out of date. But they worked for me!
Uzanto is still growing our team in Dehli. So why should you come work for us instead of the other guy? I’ve got a top 10 list.
On the heels of barcampdelhi, a geek dinner is being organized by Rakesh Argawal (CEO of Snapstream) and Gaurav Bhatnagar (from Tekriti) on March 13th. We’re meeting at the DLF Mega Mall food court in Gurgaon at 8:30pm. RSVP required (rakesh AT snapstream DOT com), and we’re going dutch. This should be a lot of fun!
Laszlo systems has always postitioned OpenLaszlo as a language that frees users from platform lockin. The markup happens to compile down to Flash, but the potential was always there to compile down to another run-time format, such as dot net. But only the potential. Until now. OpenLaszlo will soon support AJAX (a preview of this functionality is being demoed at etech as I write).
Adobe just announced the FLEX-AJAX bridge (FABridge), an open-source component that facilitates communication between AJAX and FLEX code. The meeting where it was announced showed amazing integration between AJAX applications built with Rails / prototype and individual screen components built with FLEX.
Update: here’s the blog entry with all the demos and details.
Saad documented barcampdelhi amazingly well. He not only shot some heautiful photographs, he also shot some video of my presentation on preloading data in AJAX. Here’s me talking about metaphors you can use to explain preloading, from an engineering and design perspective.
Adobe India was amazingly generous in hosting BarCamp Delhi. They not only provided food, wifi, and two fully loaded conference rooms (with projectors, lcd screens, wireless mics, etc). They also turned off their security system, letting 100 people roam around their offices unescorted and without identification. This made it possible for us to use all their conference rooms, so that everybody who wanted to present would have an opportunity. Special thanks to Ajay Pande for making it all happen, Neeraj Chawla for setting up the facilities, and Dheeraj Muku for making sure we had the IT infrastructure we needed.
Thanks guys! You rock.
Putting the bar in bar camp delhi.
Manish Jethani stepped up to the stage at barcamp Delhi yesterday, opened up vi, and started hacking in FLEX. Within a period of about 15 minutes, he built a FLEX application that consumed the rss feeds from youtube, displayed the top videos in a data grid, and allowed you to play the videos. Check it out! An impressive testiment to the power of FLEX as a multimedia platform, all done with completely FREE (as in beer) technology. Really cool stuff.
