About Me:
I teach computer courses at Honolulu Community College. I regularly teach an introductory programming course in Python, and am currently teaching a LAMP applications course that shows students how to create a virtual LAMP server and goes into the basics of using PHP with MySQL databases. I am also trying to get a project going that will create web-based tools for our campus utilizing PHP PDO and a PostgreSQL backend.

Hi Vern. Its probably best to just use the existing groups and forums. We have groups for Flex and RoR.

re: RoR Books
This would be a good question to post in the Ruby Developers or Rails Hackers group. I'm certainly not an expert on RoR, but I liked Agile Web Development with Rails from Pragmatic. Ignore the three star rating - thats just because its a new edition with only six reviewers. Previous editions had 4-5 star ratings with hundreds of votes.

I think its a fantastic idea. We have hundreds of members using both technologies (Flex and Ruby on Rails), and we are always looking to increase student involvement in the community.

Have you read Flexible Rails? Its a great book about writing apps using Flex and RoR.

Thanks for the details. It sounds like a great program! I'd be very interested in learning more about it when you hear back from NSF.

Thanks again,

hey vern, i read your comments on the Finding & Retaining Talent in Hawaii. I'd be interested to learn more about your IT Academy.

great question.

i have no idea... i'm no expert in flex. at one point i was learning about it and didn't get a chance to really hack in it for a real project. you might want to join up with the flex group, and ask them that question. i'm sure there are experts there.

good luck!

Aloha Vern. re: Flex - Dan knows more about Flex, but he is currently working mostly with GWT. I deal with sys admin work (Linux servers, network stuff, etc.)

We have a Flex group with some very experienced people. You might want to post your question there. Local companies like Sprout and Inovaware do a lot of Flex development. They seem to like it. :-)

As to being the first instructor from HCC to join, there are some others that I will try to encourage to join.

Welcome Vern! I think you are our first instructor from HCC.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as Java Developers and Science & Technology Educators.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. Have a great weekend!
