It’s always been a great experience to be at Barcamp.
PuneBarCamp4 was at ThoughtWorks.
I landed up at & got my self registered.
The sessions were in full swing. I attended
Followed by which I attended a session on Why Ruby presented by Sidu.
He got us introduced to Ruby as:
- A very simple & easy programming language
- Strongly & dynamically typed language
- In Ruby every thing is an Object – Classes too
- JRuby for Java Developers & IRuby for Dot Net Developers are more stable compared to Ruby.
- InBuild classes can be reopened.
No doubt Ruby makes life of the programmers easy but at the end let’s not forget that will have to compromise on the Garbage collection & Platform dependence.
After having a wonderful lunch I walked in for a Demo on Webaroo2 by Kiran Thakkar.
Will soon come up with a post on Webaroo2
When Tarun was shooting he asked me about my experience of being at barcamp I said
“I really enjoy being here as we get to meet & interact with like minded people about whats new & hot in the IT World. It is far better then a class room teaching as it has no code of conduct or rules to be followed. Less of theory & more practical overview about tools & technologies.”
