DrupalCon - Friday Code Sprint

Thursday marked the end of DrupalCon CPH proper, but there was an optional "Code Sprint" on Friday for those who were interested.  The idea was to get a whole bunch of developers together to help propel Drupal 7 closer to launch-readiness.

At the start of the week, to be honest I really didn't plan on going.  I had Friday and Saturday to do whatever I wanted before my flight back to Calgary on Sunday morning, and since it was my first time in Europe I was intent on spending both of them exploring Copenhagen. That was the start of the week...

DrupalCon - Monday

While the conference proper didn't start until Tuesday, there was some stuff going on Monday, including a bar-camp style "Unconference", and a number of full-day training sessions, of which I attended the "Drupal Powered E-commerce" one, which was put on by Commerce Guys, a shop that specializes exclusively in building e-commerce sites using Drupal.

Fr1st p0st!

Well, I finally managed to get my blog online. At 3am in a hotel room in Copenhagen, no less. (I wonder if a foreign birth will cause any problems if my blog decides to run for president one day? These are the kinds of things I think about at 3am in hotel rooms in Copenhagen.)

  • @sowrey one of the few articles I've seen that discusses the legal realities in play: http://t.co/nHS5FeAS (even that is "third hand" tho)

  • @sowrey why would Google allow it? For 3 years they've been able to point to Android having built-in turn-by-turn nav, which iPhone lacks

  • @sowrey even if Google would LET them renew it, it would still forbid turn-by-turn navigation

  • @sowrey I read on Slashdot yesterday that yes, the original license runs out this year. Don't have a source for that tho

  • @sowrey again, the GMaps licensing terms predate all the recent iOS vs Android crap. Those terms made this inevitable at some point

  • @WebDevMorgan interesting... I understand Google couldn't offer turn-by-turn on Android until they had full control of their own map DB too
