ActiveState at OSCON: demos, chats, swag and prizes!
at 2007-08-12 19:11:22

Sorry dear readers, but I was on holidays for the past two weeks. Not to say nothing has been happening around here, but I'm looking forward to my next trip already--Portland! Only 1 week away!

Yes, for OSCON. The ActiveState team is excited to be a part of OSCON in Portland again this year as a Silver Sponsor. We'll have our latest releases on hand, including:

  • Komodo IDE: Your IDE for dynamic web development
  • Perl Dev Kit: Create and deploy professional Perl applications
  • ActivePerl ProStudio: The complete bundle for professional Perl programmers
  • Tcl D

    I'm a huge fan of lolcats, thanks largely to Shane Caraveo (Komodo Dev Team Lead) and further indebted to Tara Gibbs (one of our in-house tech gurus) for this obsession. If your office is like ours, between lolcats and Facebook, it's surprising we get so many bugs fixed and new releases out the door, but I had to pass along this somewhat pertinent take on lolcats: LOLPUMPKING. You may go back to work now.

    (Thanks to KJ for helping me procrastinate.)

    Here's the most important news from the expo floor: the swag and nosh report. The most coveted t-shirt is surely the vibrant orange Mozilla shirt, although I'm not sure how it'll look with everyone's hangovers tomorrow (post-Mozilla party). Intel wins the swish booth award, with massive printed scrims hanging from the ceiling and—far too close to the ActiveState booth—a supply of Ben & Jerry's ice-cream bars. Speaking of food, the conference food is good this year. Yes, you heard me right: it's good. No suspicious giant sandwiches in a box.

    So it sounds like all I've been doing is eating and gathering swag, right? Well, almost. I've been speaking to lots of people at the booth, mostly answering questions about ActiveState and Komodo. As per my RailsConf report, here are the answers to the top 10 questions asked:

    1. "So, I tried Komodo, ages ago. What's new?" Whoa! Where to start... Since

      OSCON, Day 2 (ish)

      Some folks are seriously straggling this morning and the line-up at Starbucks is lengthy. The character in the pink skirt and floppy hat with balloon breasts is looking to be in fine form again this morning, although the clothes can't be so fresh after last night's Sun party in some wacky carpeted hotel parking lot. I arrived a little late for it and missed the action, I think (I assume there was more action before I got there), but there was a healthy crowd. The Mozilla party had a great band playing—Menomena, from Portland—so we hit it first. Tuesday night was a late one for me—sharing lots of red wine with the folks from Social Text—so I called it a bit earlier last night,

      Our Komodo demo CDs arrived this morning, so we're back in business today. We've also got a new case study up on our website. David Brewer and his t
