Day 34: Rüdescheim, and then Berlin

Note: It’s been too long since I’ve blogged about my trip. I promised my grandparents that I would finish my blog series about the trip. On May 2nd, I took a great boat tour up and down the Rhein River from Rüdeschiem down the stretch with many many castles and the famous Loreley. Pictures do […]

Day 33: München to Rüdescheim

On May 1st, I left München to start my short tour around Deutschland and the Czech Republic by train. From the main hoptbahnhopf, I took an express train to Frankfürt, and connected to a regional train to Rüdescheim. The train ride provided a great view of the gorgeous green German countryside. Pictures struggle to capture […]

The book Even Faster Web Sites has been out for at least a month, and I’m finally getting around to writing about it! I was invited by the book’s primary author, Steve Souders, to write a chapter about Comet. I’ve generally been extremely hesitant to commit to any amount of book authoring as I don’t […]

If you’re looking to attend a conference or two, QCon San Francisco in November has a new track titled the Browser as a Platform. I had the opportunity to speak at QCon Beijing and QCon Tokyo in April, and had ample opportunity to get to know Floyd from InfoQ. We started talking and that led […]

Day 31: Queen’s Night

On April 29th, I was still in Amsterdam. After another wonderful brunch at the hotel, this time with Peter, I gave my talk at SpringOne. It was the last talk of the conference and Peter bought me a nice pint of pear cider which I finished while delivering a lengthy (75 minute) presentation on Dojo, […]

Day 30: The Van Gogh Museum

On April 28th, I was in Amsterdam. After another wonderful brunch at the hotel and working on finishing the slides for my conference presentation, I spent my afternoon at the Van Gogh museum. Not everyone is a Van Gogh fan, but I generally always have been because I was fascinated by the way his art […]

On April 27, 2009, I woke up and had an amazing breakfast buffet at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky. Their breakfast feast puts to shame almost any other brunch out there. During the morning, I caught up on work and did a very small amount of shopping and exploring. I retrieved my badge for SpringOne and […]

On April 26 2009, Nikolai Onken met me at Schiphol airport, and we had a good chance to drive around Amsterdam so I quickly got a nice feel of the city. Amsterdam is a great city with a number of interesting historical buildings, and many many canals and bridges. As it just a few days […]

Visual History of Dojo

Will Riley of Lucid Desktop created a cool video showing a code swarm visualization of the history of the Dojo Toolkit. Thanks Will!

On April 25th (ANZAC day!), I slept in a bit and then found a taxi for the airport. ANZAC day is a holiday much like the US Memorial Day, “honouring members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.” The event made traffic a […]
