I just saw this on IRC

<rend> i dont remeber things being this hot since 99

The context of our conversation?

Ruby on Rails development in 2006.

Is the market really that hot right now? I know that we’re pretty busy and we’ll be announcing (yet) another amazing employee to our Rails development and consulting team this week… but just how hot is it out there?

I am hearing rumors of too many clients and too much work. Is this more fluff... or is this the real stuff?

I’d love to hear some of your stories! I promise to tell mine… :-)

New office coming soon!

Allison and I signed our lease on a new office space for the PLANET ARGON HQ about 3 hours ago. We’ll be moving across the river into downtown Portland, Oregon. :-)

We’ll be:

I could go on and on… :-)

...time to start packing boxes and prepare for the move. We’ll be at NW 5th & Couch. up and running

Finally! The Typo team and PLANET ARGON have finished the first phase of the move the Typo project to a new hosting provider. Currently, subversion and the trac have been moved over.

Take a look!

On the PLANET ARGON side… David Gibbons is responsible for making this happen.

If you see any issues, let us know in #typo on or in #planetargon.

On a side note… I’m sick and going to go get some rest now.

46 hours on Rails.... here we go!

If you recall… I had hinted at 46 hours on Rails.

Come with PLANET ARGON as we board the ARGON EXPRESS!

rbot as a server monitor

Most of you who know the PLANET ARGON team… know that we spend quite a bit of time on IRC interacting with our customes, clients, coworkers, and friends. Quite a bit of our coordination of projects, development, and support is handled via IRC.

For example, all our SVN commits are processed in a private IRC channel where all PLANET ARGON developers and our contractors meet and mingle. Hosting customers hang out in #planetargon on and play with our IRC Bot argonbot.

This morning… I decided that I wanted to follow the teams advice and start making argonbot even more useful. So, I setup instances of DRb running on every server that we host clients and customers on… and now we can using argonbot to help manage our servers and allow our customers to help us monitor them!

08:51 < robbyonrails> ?argon-moon xenon uptime
08:51 < argonbot> xenon uptime:  10:51:38 up 79 days, 20:34,  5 users,  load average: 1.03, 1.05, 1.00

Stop by and meet the world famous argonbot! You can even use our web-based IRC client.

I love DRb.

Rails development in 2006, part 2

Posted by Tue, 17 Jan 2006 15:15:00 GMT

Before I get too excited and make another cool announcement, I just want to say that I am really looking forward to 2006. This is going to be an amazing year.

Many people believe that there is going to be a significant spike in web development in the coming year and much of that is going to surround AJAX/Web2.0… and I can honestly say that this has been the case for the past several months here at PLANET ARGON. To prepare ourselves for the coming year, we have been working with some amazing developers… one of which is named, Jason Watkins, which we’ve just recently hired as our Lead Product Developer. He’s already proving to be a wonderful addition to our Core Team and I would expect that you’ll be hearing a lot more from him on his fairly new blog in the coming months. :-)

Welcome to the team Jason!
