RailsConf 2006 Keynote speeches

There are good keynote speeches from RailsConf 2006.
You can view the video from here.

I watched the speeches by Martin Fowler and Dave Thomas.
I totally agree with Martin Fowler. What he mentioned is one of the main reasons why I like to use Ruby on Rails.
And Dave has good points.

And also watched the one by David Heinemeier Hansson at the local Ruby Users Group meeting recently.
Here is the slide for it. It is eye-opening.

I simply enjoyed listening to their talks.

Good and Bad Procrastination

XPToronto's post with link to Good and Bad Procrastination shed some light on my current situation.
I felt a little good about myself.
Mastering Ruby on Rails and using it in Agile way is important to me.
Even though I'm not earning money to make a living in order to give time to do so, it is a good way to spend my time.

Java SE 6 released!

Java SE 6

Things have been changing. Improvements have been done.

After I'm done with mastering Ruby on Rails following Dave Thomas and David Heinemeier Hansson's "Agile Web Development with Rails" cover to cover, I may go back to Java and try Java SE 6.
