ContextWeb is Hiring Java Developers in NYC

For people who have heard, I recently started a new position as a developer at ContextWeb. ContextWeb is a targeted/contextual advertising provider and exchange, and recently embarked on a technical re-architecture moving from C# to Java, moving from DBs to Hadoop, running a SCRUM/Agile environment with a bunch of pretty sharp people, free coffee, soft ...

Loadtesting on EC2 – in all cloud++

Recently at work, had a need to rerun some load-testing numbers, but got stick since our internal servers all had builds we were looking at, or weren’t setup, or yada, yada… so we turned to EC2, with overall pretty positive results. Some background – we build a web-based portal application that runs on a lightweight ...

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 ...

Ruby, Builder, and CourseManagementXML Data

We needed to populate some training course and class rosters into Sakai to let people play with site creation, roster attachment, and publishing tests to students. While we could have used webservices, we decided to leverage the built-in CmSyncJob and generate an XML file to dump out the data, and then sync it into the ...

FCKEditor config.js pain

FCKEditor config.js pain
So… I was editing config.js to cut down the option from the default Sakai toolbar configuration for a Sakai build (which makes a huge diffence in being able to see stuff in the richTextAreas). I got burned for a while (well, 10 minutes anyway) due to Firefox and some aggressive JS caching. Did a bunch ...

Portlets2008 and CampusEAI Annual Conference Recap

>ландшафт. the exhaustion that was the combined CampusEAI Portlets2008 and Annual conference is now behind us, and it seems like time for some reflections and observations. Hopefully some of these items will be items which I expand upon at a future date, but in no particular order, dumped straight from my brain: * JSR-168 is ...

OSP ePortfolios & Sakai Courseware?

I started this entry while I was riding a train back from the Laguardia ePortfolio Conference I’m endeavoring to reflect upon and synthesize threads from various (enlightening) presentations I’ve seen, and discussions I’ve had the privilege of participating in. First a brief plug: the content from the conference was fantastic — many congratulations to the ...

Portals and LMSs (and Collaboration, SIS, Library, and other Suites)

Clay from Georgia Tech shot me an email recently which spurred me to try and put to words how my thinking has evolved about the relationship of an enterprise portal and Sakai, and where these technologies and communities are heading. In general I think the focus of “enterprise portals” has always been one of integration ...
