Google Calendar


I have been looking at yet another great tool from Google.   In true Web 2.0 style Google calendar allows people to share calendar events with on the web.  They provide an API so I am going to try to integrate my public events with my web site.

On a different note, I was at another DJMG meeting last week where we discussed dynamic languages such as Ruby on Rails and Groovy.  It looks like there are a lot of advantages to using these languages over the conventional Java program.  Jake was able to show us how Ruby on Rails can provide you with web interface to database tables in just a few clicks.   As we discussed this software works great for what 95% of web applications use J2EE for and at the end of the day this is what we usually are developing.

    Sounds like an interesting Java meetup – I’m now sorry that I missed it.
