OSCON 2011 – Tuesday July 26


Finally, I’ve found time and motivation to attend the O’Reilly organized Open Source Convention 2011 in Portland, Oregon.

It has been many years since I was in Portland – in fact, the times I spent in Portland was when I was in school in OSU in the latter half of 1980s. Most times, I will drive up from Corvallis on a Saturday morning, go to Powell’s and spend the whole time there. I did do some hiking around the area, but it was Powell’s for me.

So, it is somewhat of a de ja vu and yet new.

I have signed up for the sessions on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday and will also be supporting the Fedora team who has a booth as well as the Open Source for America.

Tuesday’s sessions show a few HTML5 talks.  Looks like HTML5 is indeed the next new shiny thing. May be not. But it is nice to be in a techie session and actually do some coding – it is always a good adrenalin rush for me. Coding and hacking has always been.

Here’s the site the speaker Remy Sharp is using for his talk “Is HTML5 Ready for Production” – jsbin.com,  html5demos.compusher.com and responsivepx.com/. Cool stuff – he is now showing WebSockets as well. Awesome. WebSocket servers have to be node.js machines for superfast connections.
