  • Don Dodge, Google and Developers Evangelism

    November 16, 2009

    I was just reading over at TechCrunch about Google quickly hiring Don Dodge after he was let go from Microsoft. It seems Don will be doing what he used to do at Microsoft – Developer Evangelism (good for him, and Google!). I’m very happy to see that Google is putting their stock options and cash […]

  • New programming languages forces you to re-think a problem in a fresh way (or why do we need new programming languages. always.)

    November 13, 2009

    Whenever a new programming language appears some claim its the best thing since sliced bread (tm – not mine ;-) ), other claim its the worst thing that can happen and you can implement everything that the language provides in programming language X (assign X to your favorite low level programming language and append a […]

  • Google AppEngine – Python – issubclass() arg 1 must be a class

    September 14, 2009

    If you are getting the error “”issubclass() arg 1 must be a class”” with Google App Engine SDK for Python on Linux its probably because you are running Python 2.6 (and will probably happen to you when you run Ubuntu 9.04 – 2.6 is the default there). Just run the dev server under python 2.5 […]

  • Google Developer Day 2008 Israel – I’ll be there

    November 1, 2008

    As I’ve previously mentioned, tomorrow I’ll be at the Google Developer Day taking place at Avenue Center near TLV airport. If you want to me and talk or just say hi ping me.

  • Google Developer Day 2008 Israel (yes, it’s in Israel)

    September 22, 2008

    About a year and a half ago I’ve written about Google Israel’s position in the Israeli development community (actually, there lack of) and that a company like Google should be more involved. This was written around the time the 2007 Google Developer Day happened in more than 10 places around the world but not in […]

  • Google Reader Search is here!

    September 6, 2007

    I fired up Google Reader this morning and to my surprise I found a search box: This is one of the last missing features I wanted Google Reader to have. I actually have a friend that didn’t want to switch from a desktop feed reader until Google Reader added search. Now he can safely move […]

  • Google Apps for your Domain, DNS, CNAME and Security

    June 4, 2007

    I’ve recently started to use Google Apps for Your domain to host my private emails on the sandler.co.il domain. Google Apps for your domain is quite cool and was very easy to configure. I mainly moved to it due to the unbelievable amounts of SPAM and I didn’t have the power or time to configure […]

  • My Google Development Community Piece was referenced at ZDNet

    May 30, 2007

    2 days ago I wrote a post about the lack of Google Israel’s involvement in the development community. It seems that in most of the places (I’m sure in the US, I’m not sure if the rest of the development centers in South American and Europe have the same involvement) where Google has development centers […]

  • Google Israel – Where Art Thou in the Development Community?

    May 28, 2007

    I know that Google‘s original Googleplex at Mountain View is very active for non googlers. There are frequent open lectures there and they host a bunch of other things like Summer of Code (well, not always host, but sponsor and make sure people know about it) and Google Developer Day (which is happening at 10 […]

  • Google Apps for Your Domain and Gmail Mail Applet for Nokia phones

    April 7, 2007

    I own a Nokia E61 cell phone. A nice phone all in all (aside from the backup problems my wife encountered). Gmail has this cool little applet that lets me access my Gmail account in a nicer (and better cached) way from my cell phone. It’s a really nice program and I use it quite […]
