Mini-Seedcamp arrives in Tel Aviv

Seecamp logo

Seedcamp ran a Mini-Seedcamp's in Tel Aviv at the end of January and CrictorNews was there to capture it on video:

In this interview we speak with the Founder and the CEO of Seedcamp about whether they have seen any specific trend in product/service area among European High Tech companies, what Seedcamp has to offer Israeli High Tech companies and if they think there is an advantage in entering the European market instead of heading directly to the US.

This one hasn't been asked but what do Israeli High Tech start-ups of Jan 2009 need most of all for their livelihood - is it mentors or just simply plain old cash?

JRuby on Rails with GlassFish Code Camp

On February 19 Sun Startup Essentials Israel and the local ISV Engineering team ran the the first ever JRuby on Rails with GlassFish Code Camp.

Though it wasn't a great turnout we did get support from our local Ruby experts Astrails Astraisl log who gave us a presentation on Ruby. You can see their blog posting for their presentation.

The following are some quotes from the attendees:

Thank you for the code camp. It was very interesting and quite practical. Good emphasis on hands-on / background balance. I was impressed from the kit you provided, which included excercises, solutions and the working environment.

The presentations were given in a nice manner. Live demonstrations have an added value.

Ilan Simon, SeeSite

The DTrace  presentation by Amit showed it to be an amazing tool which is practically a must-have for anyone serious about understanding where a software application or system spends its time. Me & my group shall definitely like to learn more about this tool.

Yochai Cohen, Sun

See Amit Hurvitz's blog for his insights and more details on the code camp.
