For the first time ever I went to MalmÃ¶Â this Sunday. It looks like a really cool city with a lot of interesting architecture, so Im definitely going back to check that out another day. The reason for this trip was thatÂ David Black, author ofÂ Ruby for RailsÂ was in town. David was giving an eight hours workshop on the Ruby on Rails framework – and since Femi and I were in the process of starting a side project in Rails this was just what we were looking for.Â The seminarÂ was held by the up and comingÂ Polar RoseÂ who are working on a very interesting project about facial recognition. Mikkel from Polar Rose gave me a demonstration of the magic they can do and for a flickr fan like me Im really looking forward to their beta.
The seminar was a crash course for me since I had only had very limited experience with Ruby on Rails so very educational and informative day – this is something that I will have to use more. – Thanks to David and Polar Rose for putting this togetherÂ
Today Femi and I are on the road again this time its aÂ
hitchhikingÂ trip to Aalborg. We will spend most of the week up there so if you are in Aalborg let us know and well see if we can meet up.
Update: After trying for two hours to get a ride we gave up hitchhiking and went with train, delays and everything.
