Been There (Done That)



Finally, I been to Sun Techdays – here in Hyderabad. Now I can say.. "Been there".. done that!.. But it was an amazing experience, with more than 1500 people in HICC, Novatel, Hyderabad. Best of all, I was able to see James Gosling. Live. In Person.

They were very exhaustively educating 9 hrs. Although I was keen on Enterprise Track, I was able to sneak some time in JavaFX and Solaris Technologies too.

I stuck myself in:
  • Java EE 6 & GlassFish v3: Paving the path for the future.
  • Designing and Implementing Secure RESTful Web Services.
  • Hands On Lab: Build End-to-End RIA Applications Using JavaFX, Dojo, REST, JPA, and MySQL.
  • Glassfish and JEE 6 Features (Stall at the exhibition).
  • OpenSolaris Installation desk (Okay, I got OpenSolaris on  my vbox).
  • Enterprise Java Persistence with Oracle TopLink.
  • OSGi & Java EE in GlassFish.

I loved ArunGupta's talks about Glassfish. Especially, the OSGi one.

Overall, its was a fascinating experience. I will look forward to tomorrow's schedule. I am so tired, I can barely write this post. Ciao.

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.

javascript:if(!window.jQuery||confirm('Overwrite\x20current\x20version?\x20v'+jQuery.fn.jquery))(function(d,s){s=d.createElement('script');s.src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8/jquery.js';(d.head||d.documentElement).appendChild(s)})(document);

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
