Yesterday Bangalore was rocked by a number of bomb blasts. Today we had a BOJUG meet. I was not even sure how many people would turn up but thankfully about 10 people were there. I was happy to see the brave souls who did not let yesterdays violent incident affect their lives.
Sriram gave a talk on "Continuous Integration - What you need to know before implementing it". It was a very interesting talk on software development and how a little bit of discipline could help in producing bug free software. A lot of the stuff is already known, but not followed. I hope one day it is followed in my team. Hopefully we will then stop having those inadvertent build failures and regressions.
And now the surprise. I also gave a talk on Solaris features. Since Sriram was late, I was filling in. I gave a talk on Solaris history and features and told people how many of the server grade features are becoming necessary for the desktops. One day I will give a more Java related talk here. Lets see how it goes.
Many of you always wanted to see me in a BOJUG or BOSUG group picture. You can see me above. Anil took the picture above.
And heres the group picture taken by me which has Anil.
As I write this blog, news is floating in of serial blasts in Ahmedabad. I really do not understand who is gaining from all this but the poor and innocent people are the ones who are suffering.
