I was shown this awesome module for Grunt and Grunt Tasks that will log any of the output from Grunt or it's tasks to file, /by +Werner van Deventer 

http://goo.gl/kmQEln

This can be super useful if you are needing to keep a build log or even if you want any of your linting "errors" or warnings so that you can go through them afterwards ( for those who don't have a linter in their editor/IDE ).

I would say maybe a "must have" option for something that is in production.

Wow...came across this while investigating the closing date for +JSConf AU call for speakers..

http://au.jsconf.com/#cfp

Feel really honoured ( in a strange way )...now let's hope this works in my favour for my proposal being accepted... :P

If you haven't submitted your proposals yet, do so now! And if you are unsure if you should as you may not have something to talk about or that you might not be best suited to do so...DO SO NOW!!!

I hope to submit my proposal later this week and hopefully see you there :)

It is that time of year again, where we will be having another Derivco Dev Evening!

This installment looks to be fulled with some great talks,such as:

Have you heard of the Oculus Rift?
Extending SQL Server's Capability using SQL CLR Functions and Procedures
An Introduction to the Netduino Prototyping Platform

While we will also show off some other cool tech such as the Leap Motion, nifty Smart Watch and interactive Augmented Reality (AR) Cards.

Be sure to book a seat for what looks to be a great evening!

Hope to see you there!
