Partnership meeting in Brno - Dec08

This post I have prepared more than month. Today I find short time for post it. On 11.12.08 together with my colleagues (I, Roman, Ales) we went to Brno. There we should visit partnership meeting at Masary University - Faculty of Informatics. I don't want to bother you by details around our travel from Prague to Brno. We used highway and car ;) I have to note that they have very nice lecture room for this kind of events. Here is small overview around presenations we had.

Red Hat Czech, s.r.o. , IBA CZ, s.r.o., IBM Česká republika, spol. s r.o., Javlin a.s.,, a.s. , Hewlett-Packard s.r.o.  , MSR Engines , Sun Microsystems Czech, s.r.o. , USU Software, s.r.o. , ZONER software s.r.o.

We have started contact with IBM and others. We had discussion with our current partners.  Whole atmosphere was very nice. We also spoke to students about our technologies . We have prepared Awards fot students so we did small test of theirs knowledges about SUN. Main thing is that they interested about cooperation with SUN as part-time employee and also on any thesis. In this case of thesis I hope we will be able to develop this connection with Brno much more.

Small note to the end. Roman did very nice presentation about opensolaris ;) he did also nice note about concurency. It was funny because he had presentation befor RedHat.

Guillaume Laforge, founder and Project Manager of Groovy ...

Last week was added Groovy and Grails support to the NetBeans standart distibution. Now you can download it from here.  Who is Guillaume Laforge ?

Guillaume Laforge, founder and Project Manager of Groovy, spec lead of JSR-241, founder of the Grails framework, co-author of Groovy in Action, frequent conference speaker and VP Technology of G2One, Inc.  I think this is very good characterization. 
Today he pressented Groovy success stories and future directions on. This pressentation was litlle bit diffrent than one I have seen before ( previous pressentation was more technical and there was lot of examples of groovy usage). This pressentation was more like the tale and it was about vision of the future. Guillaume also metioned advantages of groovy in general. How is easy to write some hard mathematical equations. I think in that case is Groovy really strong! Also he mation that Groovy is quite faster than other. I do belive to that because it's quite logical.

Here are some pictures.

OSDevCon 2008 - next stage of propagation

The First Presentation

Today is 29.11.2007 and around 5 p.m. In few minutes should start my first presentation about SUN technologies. I’m in the auditorium 20 minutes before and I’m trying to prepare all devices which I’ll need later like my laptop and projector, of course. When I have everything ready I talk to myself have I everything done? I hoped so.
One minute to go and here it is.

The first presentation was about Sun technologies in general and OpenOffice. Why I decided to do this? Because most of students in my school have no idea about what is Sun working on. For most of students is little bit difficult to create nice and good report so I introduced them to OpenOffice.

Part one covered introduction of me, web pages (, incoming presentations and possibilities of SUN technologies.

Part two was focused on last OpenOffice version 2.3. I demonstrated how to use Write, Calc, Impress, Draw and also Base. I showed them how to write scripts and how to connect whole office package to the database. I tried to show all possibilities of this office package which could be interesting for students like easy creating of Web Pages.

Part Three was discussion. Students had lot of questions about scripting languages of OpenOffice , where could download source code and also information.

Attendance of this first seminar was more than 23 people included professors and docents. I was very happy because this seminar was quite late in the afternoon and attendance was great. We spent 2,5 hours by talking about SUN technologies together :)
