My good friend and business associate, Ash Sanieyan from PeerGlobe Technology, has launched his new website and blog. PeerGlobe’s new website is powered by the Joomla CMS version 1.5 and so far it looks pretty good. Ash is constantly improving the site as he is going. Once he told me that he can’t wait until everything is perfect and I agreed. That is exactly why we have created content management systems so we can gradually fine-tune and grow the content of our websites.
Ash is a brilliant developer, and his specialties are Ruby on Rails, Facebook Applications, and Mobile Applications. Just two nights ago we hosted the Adobe AIR Workshop together at The Network Hubs, and he was showing everyone how to put a flex user interface on top of a Ruby On Rails MVC design.
PeerGlobes blog is still new. We are looking forward to many useful insights that Ash will publish for us.
We have 4 days left to the Vancouver’s first Joomla! DocCamp event. This is a community collaborative documentation event for the newly released open source content management system Joomla! 1.5.
Just to let you know that we are not going to sit in isolated seats and write boring user instructions inside a Wiki. This is supposed to be a fun social event, therefore we are going to do the complete opposite:

I attended the previous event and after viewing few quite amazing (and not so amazing) presentations I got to meet some really wonderful people such as Boris Mann, Roland Tanglao, Miss 604, my great business associate Ash Sanieyan, and of course Gerald himself. So this event will not only contribute to your development knowledge, but also a great opportunity to meet some really good people in the Vancouver’s technology and business community.
I will be there taking some pictures and blogging. Let’s see what our town’s developers have been cooking up lately.
Facebook probably has more than 60 million users by now. Some of us spend at least 15 minutes or more there, so it is part of our everyday life. Facebook is also a neat framework for developing web applications, and I know quite a number of developers who develop for Facebook including Gerald, Ash and myself (shameless self promotion!)
Btw: this is Gerald’s website. He is a very experienced Ruby on Rails developer and he has been very active brining the community of Ruby developers together.
