I couldn’t find a simple example that explicitly shows how to connect to DB2 from sMash, so I put one together. You can grab the resulting example sMash application using the zero command line like this:
zero modulegroup addurl http://soal.org/sMash/repo/
zero create db2App from soal:db2App
DPC ended last weekend, so I’m a little late with my write-up. However, the event was sufficiently memorable to still be fresh in my mind. 🙂
Like the vast majority of attendees, I was massively impressed by the superb selection of talks and the attention to detail inherent in every aspect of the organisation of DPC ’09. Big thanks to the Ibuildings folks for this. One example of the love they poured into the event is the conference introduction video, which was played on a large screen before the opening keynote. It included customized avatars for every speaker, including me… even though I was a very late addition to the speaker list!
Last night I presented the Standard PHP Library at the PHP London User Group. The aim was to give an overview of the extension and to entice people into coming to TestFest, of which the London and Manchester incarnations will be focussing on SPL.
Thanks to all who attended! Here are the slides for those who couldn’t make it:
Today Ant and I did a quick demo of sMash at SAP Inside Track London 2009, an unconference organized by Darren Hague and Nigel James. The idea was to show how sMash could be used to rapidly script up situational web apps (aka “satellite apps”) that integrate with SAP and provide extra, peripheral functionality.
