w00t! The next Webstock mini has been announced (Tuesday 19 June) and it promises to be a cracker.
One of my idols and a key contributor to Mozilla’s rendering engine, Gecko, Robert O’Callahan, will give us a preview of Firefox 3. He’s a software hero who like so many important Kiwi’s is virtually unheard of in his own country.
Leigh Blackall is lined up to explain and demonstrate Second Life. There’s no Linux client as far as I know, so that’s my excuse for not having tried it out yet. I’m looking forward to seeing it for the first time….
There’s also going to be a debate in the final session (which follows the second round of networking) which will be highly entertaining.
Michael ‘Koz’ Koziarski will also present a half day workshop on Ruby on Rails for beginners. He’s one of the core developers of Ruby on Rails so you don’t get a much better opportunity to learn than that! It’s a steal at $300 bucks, and I think constitutes far better value than most training courses.
