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.

Diploma Thesis, NetBeans and Java

I guess this time is good to announce something new. I did announce a lot around Sun Grid Engine. We are driving this together with Lubos Petrik from Czech SUN. Now I want to post some update around work focused on NetBeans IDE. Together with Peter Blaha we started another Diploma thesis in cooperation with Czech Technical University in Prague. The topic of this work is following: When Do Changes Induce Fixes Do the similar analysis that is described in the paper for NetBeans repository.

Instead of fact lot changes are happening universities are away from this game.

SCA meeting - Iberia, Italy, Czech, Poland and Hungary

Yesterday I had a meeting with SCAs from countries mentioned above. It was very nice in all directions. Meeting was done over  Elluminate as normal. This application allows me to share also desktop applications and doing more reall presenation. I used this feature and instead of common organizational information I did technical demo for SCAs. Tech demo shoudl be more for motivation and increase curiosity. In that way I'm pretty sure it was succesful.

Based on the fact I did presenation more focused on NetBeans I also tried to mention all useful resources around. On my blog I'm giving you chance to download it and keep your eye closer .

Day before I read JavaFX specification again and I did couple of examples but then I decided to promote NetBeans and PHP development.  Why I did it ? What I have seen across the world PHP is one of the most popular technology. NetBeans is also very good IDE and it's still better and better. Whatever,  PHP support  is implemented. No doubts about benefit from . 

I decided to connect it with DRUPAL Content Management System. I brought out to student how connect to specific database and how to work with inside the IDE. For better imagine have a look at PDF file I'm providing to you as inspiration.Only one comment I did evererything in real with appropriate explanation about. PDF is more like list of sources.

I didn't forget to mention GeeCON. There are going to be lot of opportunities for all students, for others enthusiastic too. I'm looking forward to see most of them there too again.

JUST Enjoy !

PS: PDF was send to ambassadors alias

Drupal, NetBeans and plugin

I didn't have so much time after start of the new year. I wanted to post new article but without any success. I was busy a lot.  I have to manage Sun Campus Ambassadors for my regions and also GeeCON and my personal life of course. Now I'm sitting in the class with my students and they are doing theirs final test from Information technologies basics.  So it means I have a time to send my prepared article :)

I'm fun, programmer and user of DRUPAL CMS systems.  My first  tech. post is going to be about. I have read several books in the past about DRUPAL development also I went through many of web pages about, not everything was useful to see and read. I do recommend this book before you start doing anything with.This book is named Pro Drupal Development 2nd Edition.

As NetBeans user I could only recommend  pluging for NetBeans 6.5 .

Late I'll blog more about now I have to correct student's tests :) They wanted to know if they passed. 

Sun Campus Ambassador in Spain/Iberia - Universitat Rovira i Virgil

this will be another brief post to my blog. As I'm coordinator also for Iberia/Spain I'm trying to support and advise all our SCAs there. ( Small note I have about name of the country. I still don't know what is better. In Europe we are using only Spain.) We have SCA Raul Tinedo on University Universitat Rovira i Virgil. I have to note that he is doing pretty well in his effort.

His the first presenation was around NetBeans 6.5 new features and usage. He meation also SAI or OSUM. Raul is on the right way with this kind of presenation. Personal experiencse is very important. I'm looking forward for his next presentation. I'm crossing fingers for you Raul :)
