Updates from Portland

I’ve been in Portland since Saturday, first attending FLOSS Foundations meeting which was very productive, and now attending meetings and tutorials and such. I’ve been a bit disconnected from the rest of the world due to The Conference Effect, but Nikolai from Uxebu gave me a heads-up that today they’ve announced a new Dojo + Django integration project called Dojango. A lot of the Dojo community thinks the Django guys have done a lot of things right, so this kind of integration makes tons of sense. I can’t wait to see how it evolves.

While here I also got wind that Sun has quietly announced a new version of the Java Communication Suite with a rich, Dojo-based web interface. I don’t know if it’s running publicly anywhere, but it looks like an impressive win for Sun’s Communication Suite customers.

If you’re in Portland, I hope you’ll join us for tonight’s dojo.dinner(), 6:30pm at the Chesterfield (and RSVP for it by by sendng us mail).
