If you’re reading this , you’ve missed the Dublin Java Users Group (previously known as the Dublin Java Meetup). Jakub will have his blog of the event up soon, including his mad take over the world plans.
- Jakub’s blog post is here. The comment about PHP is wrong . It should read ‘Paul confessed that he is a big fan of PHP due to the number of ready-to-go-solutions out there, then took a lot of flak from the Java developers present’ 🙂
- Jake’s also posted about how to get the best deal from the Dell website.
Ruby Ireland are sounding out groups that might be interested in getting it on at a code jam. Seems like a natural fit for JUG to get involved in?
That sort of topic did come up – was going to make it more controversial – a sort of ‘face off’ as to why Java / Ruby / PHP / Python / .Net was the best.
No hope of converting anybody, but as a way of exposing things that other languages do better , it would be good.
