Goodbye to Wave

As you may know, Google Wave will be stopped by the end of the year.
For sure, that's a bad surprise.
RIP Google Wave  20 May - 4 August 2010

For me, it means that the WRF ends too. Actually, it ends now.
Sure, there's plenty of time between now and december but I have already spent a lot of time on WRF.

The generator may find a second life, who knows ... it's only the templates that must be changed.

However, WRF was a very good experience for many things.
First is my collaboration with Romin  (@iRomin), who has become a friend. Mon ami, our daily (live) exchanges through Wave were lots of fun and knowledge sharing.

I gained pride as WRF was for a long moment (during the V1 days) the subject of three (from eleven) articles listed on the dedicated page on google's site.

Not bad for a project done little by little on my sleeping time (meaning I was often half asleep while coding)

Thanks to @fbaligand, I had the occasion to speak of WRF during the "JumpCamp 4 IT" event in Paris. My first public speaking since ... long ago.
I proposed to present WRF and a usage of it at the Devoxx 2010 conference. Well, no answer yet but I think I know it.
I really wanted a MAJOR speaking experience to push my limit. Too bad. Have to create something else.

During Google I/O, I have met people who followed me on twitter and knew my project, have met googlers IRL, spoke of WRF to some of them.
I even chatted with Vic G (fantastic speaker) !
Incredible San Francisco where three French guys named Jérôme can stand in the same square-meter (have a look at SnapABug.com). That never happened to me in France as Jérôme is a quite rare first name.

About Googlers, Wave's DevRel @pamelafox is a fantastic I.T woman. Talented, funny, clear minded and such a good speaker.

I am certainly forgetting other + points about the WRF episode.

Overall, the Wave experience was very good for me that's why I am so bitter that it's over.
So, goodbye Google Wave, rest in pieces, we'll meet again.

First ADvertisement for the WadRobotFramework

I have recently know about the site http://www.xtranormal.com that allows to create movies via a website.
You certainly have too, due to the buzz with the 4G/Evo video. 

So, as I saw robots being available as actors, a bell ringed and I did a short movie about my WadRobotFramework
I managed to have it published for free after the deception of the will-have-to-pay feeling (must be by changing of actors and background).
I've also put it on youtube. 
In less than a minute, it will not teach new stuff if you are already experienced with the WRF but I hope you will find it funny.

So, if I remember a conversation I had with @didiergirard (who coined the Geek 2.0 term), I think that 'creating an ad' is one more line to add to the todo-list of actions that should go along an opensource project :
  • create a dedicated twitter account
  • create a dedicated website
  • speak of it
  • (and more)
Have fun with the video !
On YouTube  or on xtranormal.com

I'll definetely have a go with the desktop software of xtranormal

A wave for the WadRobotFramework


There is now a wave about the wave robot framework ! But, as scripts do not work in this blog, got to Wave and search for WadRobotFramework

The page at http://thecodersbreakfast.net/index.php?post/2010/04/15/Google-Wave-Embedded-:-Mise-%C3%A0-jour will show you how to embed a wavelet on your website.

A cool logo ...


I know I am a right-handed guy with two left hands, I cannot draw. That's a fact.
Too bad, I have other talents or so I think.

I need a logo for my framework.
The name is "WadRobotFramework".

Here are a few constraints : (may evolve of course)

  • no aggressivity
  • no skynet/terminator stuff
  • metal
  • pop shiny colors too
  • robot comes out of a box (?an eclipse logo on it ?)
  • a taste of 50's sci-fi would be nice
  • MGM-like, a roaring robot :)

I forgot. I have a budget for this although free cooperation to the project would be credited.
My budget is small but fair. I can pay with a French check or through PayPal.

Send me your estimation and sketch.

WadRobotFramework, les slides en français

J'ai publié les slides de ma présentation sur mon WadRobotFramework sur SlideShare.net

 Quelques anecdotes sur cette présentation :
  • La sortie vidéo de mon portable n'a pas fonctionné
  • Le portable prêté est tombé en panne de batterie
  • J'ai utilisé une version non corrigée de mon framework

Mais je m'en suis bien sorti quand même, j'ai rencontré des gens passionnants et même une célébrité (@didiergirard), revu ce taquin de @fbaligand. Il a raison sur le fait que c'est la troisième présentation sur Atmosphere que je rate.
Faudra m'en faire une pour moi tout seul, Fabien.

Voici les slides

WRF - WadRobotFramework v1.1 is released

WRF Version 1.1 is released.

It features the robot generator. See wiki for instructions.

A near complete robot can now be generated in a few seconds, reducing even more its TTC (time to cloud).

Logic implementation has still to be done by the user. Sorry about that.

Tweak TWO (or even one) .properties file, run a target and voila !

How ??
First, build.properties (once for a workstation)
then, generator/generator.properties (once for each robot)
launch one of the following Ant targets (in build.xml)

# generate_SimpleAppenderRobot
# generate_SimpleModifierRobot
# generate_AdvancedRobot

According to the type of robot you want (see wiki).
On-screen instructions will tell you which files to modify (for the logic part).
The project's wiki proposes instructions for both generating and using the generated robot.

Enjoy and give feedback. Thanks.

WadRobotFramework : QuickStart archive published !

I have published a ZIP file containig an Eclipse project that is nearly ready to deploy.
A few adjustments to your station are still necessary.

Please look at the QuickStart wiki page for details, you will find the ZIP on the homepage and under the Downloads tab.

More to come : I am working on the Ant script that will generate entire project through a few inputs.
