NYC-Sakai UG & Sakai 3 (and more)

Had the chance to meet up with some people from all around (NYU, Columbia, Marist, Zach and some others) last night in NYC to talk about all things including what sounds like some really exciting movement around Sakai 3. Was a great time, and real refreshing to see everyone again in person. Sadly I’m a ...

Recommended Programmer Reading

I was recently asked via email what training or whatnot I would recommend to bring a programming team up to speed on Java. A couple options come to mind – depending on the overall scope of your programming team and their past experience (if I can ask – what is your past experience?) but, I ...

“Sakai Courseware Management” – *the* Sakai Book

This may be old news to others, but I finally have my copy of the new “Sakai Courseware Management” book (courtesy of the folks over at Packt) and more surprisingly have even been able to carve out time to read the contents. For people who may not have been aware, this is the book that ...

BDD with easyb

Recently I’ve grown increasingly fond of the concepts embodied in the “Behavior Driven Development” (BDD) outgrowth of “Test Driven Development” (TDD) and “Domain Driven Design” (DDD) . BDD is a neat twist on TDD and DDD that strives to more closely tie automated tests with both the “ubiquitous language” terminology espoused in DDD, along with ...

More Google Malware Woes

According to Safari 4 this blog is back on the Google malware list, though the Google Website Owner tools (which look neat) don’t appear to flag any warnings, and it’s not clear why that would be the case. The report sounds pretty innocuous, though oddly it shows up as being for: 74.222.134.0, which nslookup doesn’t report ...

From Twitter: Facebook Meets Life Realities

Its a bit creepy when Facebook shows you the birthday of a friend who has passed away. The FB kids weren’t thinking about death and divorce. http://twitter.com/gwachob

Jasig CAS4

Listening to Scott talk about CAS4 work and effort. Core items he’s mentioned look to be: * Redesigned to better support non-CAS protocols (e.g. SAML, etc.) * Increased emphasis on SAML as a product * Better admin tools (service administration, workflow for registering services) * Eased configuration (w/o needing to edit deployerContext.xml) * Better extension ...

At Jasig Dallas

In Dallas at the Jasig Conference, getting ready for the Board meeting where we’ll be looking at licensing, incubation, and some other strategic concerns related to open-source in HigherEd. Already had some great conversations about CAS & credential replay, Peoplesoft integration, and open-source economics & dynamics. P.S. Ian Dolphin clarified over beers last night that ...

Screening Resumes

We’ve been looking at expanding our development team (contact me if you’re an awesome developer, passionate about what you do, and like people and work) and so I’ve been screening a lot of resumes and CVs recently. If you’re a candidate, keep reading and tell me in your interview you read this. If you’re just ...
