Me at Yahoo! HackDay India

Today I am at Yahoo! HackDay India, happening at Taj Residency in Bangalore. If you are here please drop by for a chat. I’m also doing 2 sessions at HackDay, one on Flex & another on AIR, complete with some live coding demos. So do drop in if you are interested. Starts at 15:30 hrs. Then I’ll move onto participating in the HackDay! itself.

Happy Hacking… Looking forward to a really fun weekend 🙂

Done…. Our app is ready and is called Flick Off

Its a Flex Mashup App that lets you search for a movie and presents data from various sources (Yahoo Movies, IMDB, youTube) and lets you decide if you want to watch the movie or not… Then you can actually go and rent it from

It was done in Flex, with Python and Django doing the backend magic…

It was fun hacking with Pradeep (the Django specialist) and Swaroop (The Python guru) on this. Its been a while since I had so much fun programming…

    I found a cool turbogears/flex demo done by Jim Ward and Bruce Eckels. I’ve been looking for a similar starting point for django.

    Is your code posted somewhere, I didn’t see a link on your blog.
