It is 4:00 PM and we have squashed one bug so far. A bit time consuming, but it was a high priority bug. Yes the darn thing was so big that we almost tripped over squashing it! There are still 28 people on the IRC. The event has been a success and so much fun so far.
In the far end you see Ash from (www.PeerGlobe.com) combing through the code. Ash is originally a Ruby on Rails developer, but recently has been interested in Joomla! CMS framework. Ash is a brilliant developer and so passionate about software architecture. He is also the man behind the ClassTalk Facebook Application. In fact that is were we met for the first time. Ash did this wonderful presentation at the Facebook Applications Developer’s Garage.

We’ve had two Microsoft employees talking to us, and a freshman Computer Science student too.
I am already getting a sugar high! Perhaps next time we will be going to a different venue just for a change. This one was really a warm up and the results in all 5 groups were quite impressive.
