7th edition but my first attendance. Looks like I know how to pick events because this was another great one. I’ll cover the project, theme and my feelings around me being there, people and organization.
The weekend on 10-11 December this year was a blast. 30+ hours of no sleep, including 24 hours spent on project implementation. Had 3 teammates and lots of fun inbetween. Let’s dive in to my short post mortem about the first edition (hopefully, not last) of Rzethon!
Some people are fascinated about spreadsheets. This lovely type of software was offered in Apple II computer back in 1979. Every cell could contain either data (text, numbers) or formula. What’s so special about it? Formulas are reactive. And that introduces the idea of reactivity.
Let’s have a look at few examples in some experimental technologies touching this idea.
Programistok was a small and short but very pleasure-providing conference. Giving a few words about it and some pictures taken.
So what happened on 01/10/2016 in Białystok?

So (positively) tired of talking to people. Now I shut up for two days. Thanks! #abbdevday

I sum up few thoughts from totally personal perspective. Feel welcomed, Explorer.
Once upon a time one usually desires to add Bootstrap into one’s project. Adding support for Bootstrap might seem a little hard without understanding Webpack or even despite the understanding. I started working with Vue.js (by the way, it’s great!) using the official webpack template and indeed – I struggled for a few hours.
Thus, I describe foreseen steps for the weary travelers who want Bootstrap-ify their Vue.js project.
For my acceptance tests configured in Jenkins I wanted to omit installing of any kind of X Window System. That’s pretty obvious when there is not enough RAM or we have to pay for every megs of it. But how a real browser like Firefox or Chrome would run without X servers? The answer is: X virtual buffer.
Let’s configure Selenium Server on top of xvfb on Ubuntu.
The “Daj Się Poznać 2016” (in polish: Show Yourself / Get To Know / Get Yourself Known) competition have finally come to an end. Multiple finalists shared their summaries before The Final Gala. I decided to do this after the event. This post summarises whole event in a short manner.

Argument completion should improve developer’s everyday life. Everywhere. That’s why I decided to have argument completion in The Console. To have the best thing – I want scriptable argument completion with already built-in filesystem paths completion.
Giving a few words about the process between hitting a TAB key and performing the magic.
The Console is an app which typical usecase fits within running a single instance. That’s by design. However, we sometimes forget to check whether some the app is waiting for us in the background and try to launch them. That’s when disaster happens. Two consoles placed on top of window and reacting to same hotkey? Cannot be!
Here’s a short story about preventing from having multiple instances of same app made in Java. There’s a note about communication, too.
JavaFX punched me in the face with a feature which I consider as a kind of general over-assumption and as a bug in The Console. When TextField is refocused through other event than click then it auto selects it’s whole content. I want my previous selection or caret position.
A workaround/hack/fix is introduced in this post. Oh, by the way, there’s a bug report.
