After the visit with Extenda, we headed to the restaurant for dinner, beers and CodeGear talk. It was a great turnout in Gothenburg, and we had lots of fun. Unfortunately I was dumb enough to leave my camera in Magnus' car, but luckily he had his cell phone and took these artistic shots. :)
Thanks Magnus for organizing a great afternoon/evening!
I just boarded the high speed train that runs between Gothenburg and Stockholm. They have wireless Internet on board. This is the way to commute if you have to!
Back to my blog app in 3rdRail. :)
Don't laugh, but I (and others) haven't found anything much better than VNC to a Windows machine and use Camtasia, so that's what we did.
Feel free to share your thoughts on what we *should* use for Mac. The solution we have is far from perfect, but it does work better than other ones we have seen.

Again, thanks a million to Shelby and Mark for taking the time to sit down with me and record these.
Shelby, Mark and I spent the better part of the evening and night recording videos for 3rdRail and I'm trying to upload them as I type this. They're awesome videos and will serve as both internal training and videos for customers to watch. Thanks a million to Shelby and Mark for taking the time to sit down just before your well deserved vacations!
Oh, so back to uploading these things... The 72MB of sweet rockin' SWF files are estimated at 40 minutes to upload. That's almost longer than it took to generate them once recorded and edited. I'm almost afraid that it'll take longer because I'm blogging this. :)
Oh, and to top it off, stupid me only bought an hour access at the rate of 6 Euros and thought I'd be in bed by now. It's 4am in Berlin...
I'll have to get another hour, so that I can get them up before getting some sleep.
Hold please... :)

David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH) chatting with Joe McGlynn and Mark Howe.
Roy Fielding stopped by and chatted with me for a bit.
Shelby "Schmoozelicious" Sanders
I just couldn't resist taking a photograph of this photographer and her toy right in front of our beautiful logo... :)
So far I've chatted with David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH), Roy Fielding, Martin Fowler, Neal Ford, and a few more. Hopefully I can locate David Black and Dave Thomas as well.
A couple of times yesterday our booth was just as packed with people as the U-Bahn is in rush hour! My low res video from yesterday doesn't quite make it justice.
I will post Shelby's and Mark's talk and more high res video once I get back to the office and produce it.
Neal Ford introduced me to Martin Fowler yesterday. Hopefully I get a chance to talk to him some more today.

It seems like there's an insane amount of stuff going on at the moment...
Very soon, as you may have seen indications of, there will soon be some noise on the Ruby on Rails front. Less than two weeks until that Berlin trip. :)
Surrounding my trip to Berlin for RailsConf Europe 2007, I will be in Stockholm, visiting family. I will arrive on the 16th of September, then head for Berlin the afternoon of the 17th. Back in Stockholm afternoon of the 20th, and then head back to Scotts Valley the morning of the 23rd.
So, there's a little room in my schedule for meetups, or impromptu chats over beer. Possibly even in Gothenburg - a 4.5 hour train ride from my dad's house.
You tell me, fellow Swedes - what shall we do? Chat about RAD Studio 2007? Ruby on Rails? JGears? JBuilder? InterBase? BlackFish? Let me know.

Are you doing Ruby on Rails yet? We are!
We have added a new community - Ruby, where we will soon start posting Ruby and Rails articles.
As you may know, we announced that we are working on a Ruby on Rails IDE product at RailsConf in Portland, OR earlier this year. You will see a lot more of what we have been working on shortly. A good place to start looking (if you have the chance) is our booth at RailsConf Europe in Berlin. The booth is open September 18th and 19th, and I will be in it. :)
Stay tuned to the new Ruby community for lots of cool stuff over the next couple of weeks.
