Apache on OSX Yosemite

I was recently doing some web stuff on my laptop for the first time in a while. I could pull up the "It Works!" page, but nothing else.
This Apple forum post solved it.
Blogged here to help search results :)

My fifth JavaOne started today.  I attended a Java University class.  It was interesting to be on the other side of that sort of presentation.

Red Hat is well represented this year.  There is a microsite on Red Hat Developer.

Stop by the Red Hat booth in the vendor hall if you are attending.  We have presentations all day long, and there is a rumor about trucker hats...

The agenda at our booth this week:

Monday, October 26th

Standardized Extension-Building in Java EE with CDI and JCA

Rails 4 MiniTest error

I got the following cryptic error on a new project:

~/…/unit.rb:1037:in `block in process_args’: invalid option: —use-color (OptionParser::InvalidOption)

Thanks to this blog for pointing the way.

I did not copy/paste the suggested code though.  I just ran :

guard init minitest

Strange Bundler error, noexec.rb:5:in `pwd'

I got the following after running "bundle install" :
rubygems-bundler-1.4.2/lib/rubygems-bundler/noexec.rb:5:in `pwd': No such file or directory - getcwd (Errno::ENOENT)

Thanks to stackoverflow and this blog I cd'd into the parent directory and then back into my working directory and bundler worked.

DevNation Day One

I'm in San Francisco for Red Hat's new developer conference, DevNation  It was a great foggy San Francisco morning and then a beautiful day for the first day of the conference.

I caught several good presentations.  Neal Ford's talk was up first, and he was as insightful as usual.  I've seen Neal speak many times.  Any talk that begins with the "poetry of Donald Rumsfeld" is going to get my attention.  Known unknowns...

Scott Cranton presented Camel recipes from his recent book, Apache Camel Cookbook  There is some really useful stuff in the book.  I have already ordered it from Amazon.

They middleware keynote was great  Burr Sutter led a team through "Bare metal to BPM" deploying Openshift on a bunch of old laptops (using OpenStack) and pushing Tweets through a jBPM process.

Can't wait for day two
