|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 lightning talk (for 5 minutes) on Rails/Merb powered by GlassFish/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
Read the latest on GlassFish/JRuby/Rails/Merb on the GlassFish wiki.
