Late last year, I was super-excited to learn that RubyConf 2010 was being held just an hour away from here, in New Orleans. Given that I love Ruby and write most of my code these days in it, I knew I had to go. Then, I found out that the guy who wrote Ruby, Yukihiro “matz” Matsumoto was going to be there, as well as David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the framework Ruby on Rails and co-author of the book … Read More

The conference is billed as the most prominent Republican event prior to the next national convention. Top Republican law makers from around the country are expected to be at the conference in June 2011.

The website provides a crowd-powered platform to help its users collaborate, refine, and promote their policy ideas and transform the online communication into real world … Read More

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Mele Printing’s 7th Annual “Krewe of Kookies and Kakes” where I had the opportunity to make my very own king cake! The day started off with a quick meet and greet with the 20 or so other business professionals participating in the king cake class. My friends Trammie Anderson and Mendi LeBlanc from Lamar happened to be in the class as well, so it was great seeing them. After knocking out a … Read More
