Refactoring and the Pacific Ocean

I am currently sitting in a hotel about 40 miles north of San Francisco. One more day on-site and then I fly home to Portland, so I can drive to Seattle for a day of rest. I might be back down here in a week or so.

I took a photo of the luggage of Jeremy... it was too funny to pass up.

Jeremy Refactors Luggage

He takes great pride in his packing… just like he does with the code that he designs. It was great that we fit in a few minutes for him to take his first real look at the Pacific Ocean.

I’ve been meaning to post those… so there you have them. :-)

Back in Portland... back to San Francisco

Last night, Jeremy and I got back to Portland after an intense but enjoyable rails consulting project. I’m flying back down there either later tonight or tomorrow AM to work for a few more days on-site.

Yesterday, we got to meet Deirdre Saoirse Moen and Steve Enzer on Haight St at a Wifi-friendly Coffee shop. It was nice to get to meet some bayarea rubyists. :-)

I’ll post some photos on our PLANET ARGON flickr page later…but I must go run a few errands first and we have another meeting with one of our other clients this afternoon. (then I fly back…)

I’m looking forward to sharing some of things that we’ve been learning over the past few days. I can’t discuss much about the clients business (at the moment), but we know from first hand that Ruby on Rails is being used in a fairly large production facility. At any moment 30-40 people are using a few internal Rails applications to manage the production of their business. It’s quite impressive. I’m talking… Barcodes <=> Rails. :-)
