I was a speaker at the recently concluded RIA Developer Summit 2008 in Bengaluru, India. Was my first presentation at a public conference and it felt nice to interact with the users of the product we build. Look forward to seeing everyone at future events.

Howto: Speed up Firefox startup September 14, 2008

Firefox is an amazing browser. The extensibility it provides by way of addons is becoming is problem too. When firefox startsup it usually checks for FireFox updates, updates to all addons and updates to all search engines. I did not, until today, realize that this process was such a time consuming process.

Turn off Automatic Update checks in Firefox and watch your browser popup as soon as u click on its icon :). To turn them off go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Update check off all the Automatic Update checkboxes. This leaves the onus of checking for updates on you, but I guess that better than waiting till eternity for Firefox to startup while it checks for updates of all the plugins you’ve installed.

Hope this helps …

Enjoyyy!!!

One of the most intimidating tasks when starting with eclipse development is setting up the workspace. I checked out the source code from the cvs repo but I would just not get the right projects in the workspace for the build to get through with ‘0’ errors …

And then I read this article. Amazing stuff, you have a fully functional workspace in a matter of minutes :). So all those of you who’ve been trying hard and haven’t quite reached there yet, get started using the Import Plugin Fragments feature and eclipse to get a jump start …

Enjoyyy!!!
