TV notify Recently I launched TVnotify is a website that will send you notifications via RSS/E-mail and more, whenever a new episode of your favorite TV show airs.

The website was born out of frustration with the writers strike and the confusion that led from it. After rechecking TV series every week to see if there were any new episodes I got frustrated and decided to create a site devoted to my problem.

The site design, HTML and CSS was done by my good friend and colleague Jonno Riekwel. The rest of the site was built by me and was created using Ruby On Rails.

Soon I will be integrating twitter notifications and iCal feeds.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions I will be happy to hear them!

Rails workshop in Amsterdam

Posted by Juice10 Tue, 11 Jul 2006 09:37:00 GMT

David Black is teaching a one day Rails workshop in Amsterdam. This will be held at september the 18th and will cost € 399 for the early birds and € 500,000,000 € 449 for the slow people.

I think these are very reasonable prices for such a great workshop. As most of your average workshops are € 500 a day and don’t have a world famous, top-of-the-line teacher.

Rails 'Show and Tell' Meeting

Posted by Juice10 Sat, 24 Jun 2006 14:25:00 GMT

Last Thursday Fingertips’ Rails ‘Show and Tell’ Meeting went down.

It was lots of fun and I met quite a few interesting people. Not all talks where as good as each other, but I very much enjoyed the “Why Django?” by Simon de Haan and the “Unicode in Rails” by Julian ‘Julik’ Tarkhanov presentation.

Book: RJS Templates for Rails

Posted by Juice10 Wed, 14 Jun 2006 22:59:00 GMT

This morning I bought myself a copy of RJS Templates for Rails. A 58 page Rails book about RJS Templates ($9.99) by Cody Fauser

I have read about half of it and it is a good read especially if you want to get into the whole RJS thing.

You need a bit of rails knowledge though, so its is not recommended for people with no rails knowledge at all.

Get O'Reilly's Excellent RJS Book for $6.50

What did you think of it?

Ruby on Beers

Posted by Juice10 Sun, 21 May 2006 09:53:00 GMT

Some time now I have been meaning to organize an event of my own. I thought it would be fun to get together in a cafe/pub, drink beer and socialize with the whole Dutch Ruby on Rails and I thought the name Ruby On Beers was appropriate.

In my last post I mentioned Ruby On Beers and the reactions I got where all positive so I made a logo for it:

ruby on beers

More concept work.

Date and Time

31st of May, starting at 17:00


Stairway to heaven
Mariaplaast 11-12, Utrecht
Route (pdf)

RubyEnRails 2006 finished

Posted by Juice10 Thu, 18 May 2006 19:22:00 GMT

RubyEnRails has finished and it was a great success. There where about 120 people there. Most of them hadn't worked with rails longer than 6 months. I also got to know quite allot of people.

The sponsors (Profict and Finalist) did a good job of setting up the event and the venue where this was held was very nice but it took quite long to get there.

I'm all ready looking forward to next years RubyEnRails. Maybe we should organise something in the meantime. We could all meet up somewhere and have a few beers; Ruby on Beers.
