OSCON is underway at Portland, Oregon.
Conferences in general means getting ready to know new players and interesting projects. Panelists are usual suspects so there is more of the same. Technical threads give better value in terms of knowing who is cooking what.
Neal Ford’s presentation looks insightful. We are working on our own DSL framework so it will help to get design benchmarking (OpenAppDotOrg project). Thanks to O Reilly folks all the session presentations are available on the site.
Best part of this OSCON seems to be the coming out announcement by DIMDIM and Coupa. These two apps demonstrate the unstoppable march of open source as a business model in enterprise business application category. Coupa using Rails and Dimdim support for Moodle is a big plus as well. I will be cheering for these apps that’s for sure. Watching Coupa is going to be fun as it’s adoption will be preceded by the adoption of Rails framework.
