Bangpypers met at the Thoughtworks office today. Actually it was a mini Snakes & Rubies meeting with nearly half of the attendees being BagaloreRuggers
It had been a long time since I attended one of the Geek meetings (I missed out on Barcamp BLR4 to a working weekend :( ).
Anand C, who is currently one of the lead developers for the OpenLibrary.org project, gave a brief presentation on web.py and on the infogami project which powers the Openlibrary.org project.
Baiju M, an active Zope3 contributor, briefed us on Zope Component Architecture.
Darkseid shared his experiences with deploying Ruby on rails applications and some advances in deployment technologies.
It was nice to know that Darkside and Anand also share a fascination for Functional, Dynamic languages (Haskell, Erlang and Scala). Perhaps, future geek meetings can center around Dynamic languages and not just individual languages.
With the mainstreaming of Jruby, Jython, IronPython etc., languages can no longer to considered in isolation.
I had surprising amount of things to say about Zope and Zope3 (to my own surprise!). Perhaps, me finally "grokking" Grok, had something to do with it.
