OSCON Day 3: Observations
Aug. 03, 2005 05:01 PM
It's day three here at OSCON. The new venue this year (Oregon Convention Center) is beautiful and spacious, but I do miss a certain vibe from the previous two OSCONs at the Marriott in downtown Portland where everyone attended and stayed to congregate in the same places. The sessions were very crowded last year though, so the venue upgrade was inevitable.
Hot topics and observations so far:
- Perl is dead, long live Ruby (on Rails), PHP, and Ajax. Personally, I'm not buying this theory just yet.
- Lots of buzz about new O'Reilly sites: O'Reilly Connection, CodeZoo, and Make.
- It appears there are a lot more females in attendance this year, which is very encouraging.
My lovable boss, Tony Stubblebine, has a nice write-up about the response to the O'Reilly Connection preview on his blog.
CodeZoo has announced new components for Python and Ruby.
is a Software Engineer for O'Reilly's Online Publishing Group.
