What I did during quite time ?


I don't know if I did mention in the past I love dynamic linked programming languages as Groovy or Ruby (I had aslo cool discussion with Thomas Enebo about) are. Also I cann't forget for Scala which is general purpose programming language which smoothly integrates features of OOP and functional languages.I read only one books and couple of texts about but I still have only light experiences with. So this blog post will be focused on my activities more related to programming. During quiet time I read several books about Grails and Rails. If you want to learn quite easily Groovy and Grails I could only recommend the last this one: " Grails 1.1 Web Application Development" which looks to me very good and is focused on new Grails build 1.1 If you are more familiar it good to have a look at documentation which is here [Documentation]. There is written quite everything you need. 

 I don't want to write a long story why I love Groovy but one of important thing is its ability to work and parse text content especialy GString. At one of my previous position I needed use lot of regular expressions. At that time I used perl or AWK for. Part of my project I wrote using groovy as script language I wanted to parse websites and get only specific information. Then store them in database. With Groovy was this task very easy. I have used this CyberNeko HTML Parser library, SAX parser  and couple of regular expressions of course. I guess this could be very nice presentation for Sun Campus Ambassadors.

This is also the way I tried to lead my team. Just show technologies integration with SUN ones based on universities and students expectations find equilibrium between bored marketing stuff and knowledge . I guess this could be very hard for someone who doesn't have strong technical knowledge background and experiences. I'm very proud lot of members of my team increased theirs technical knowledge. This moment was reflected by presentation successes. Professors appreciated this kind of activities now I'm writing about Central Europe. I have to mention every country needs something different. But stop now :) just let something for next. Next post I'm intending to write about diploma and bachelor thesis I drove in SUN cooperation... just see you later on, cheers

PS: At the first time I used ItelliJ IDEA editor for Grails but now I have returned back and I'm using Netbeans 6.7 again.
