Dear Reader,

For the first time in six years, I'm in Sebastopol during the Open Source
Convention (OSCON) instead of onsite, which is the Oregon Convention
Center in Portland. So, like many of you, I'm following the event via my
laptop rather than directly through my camera lens. Here's what I'm
keeping an eye on.

The first stop is the official OSCON news page:

http://www.oreillynet.com/oscon2005/

On this page you'll be able to read selected weblogs, press snippets,
articles, and groove on James Duncan Davidson's flickr photos (where you
can see what I believe to be the first blue inflatable chair ever at an
O'Reilly conference. Oh my, I'm getting a late '90s flashback).

But don't stop there. I also follow our own O'Reilly Network weblogs.
For example, if you really want to feel the nap in the carpet, check out
brian d foy's "OSCON D1." That's what I call in-the-trench reporting:

of your work that you can show to any prospective employer. Wondering how
to choose an open source project to contribute to? Come to OSCON 2005 this
week and rub elbows with just about everyone connected to the community.

Using Perl to Manage Plist Files, Part 2
Part 2 goes into much more detail on managing Plist files. You'll change
some values and save the altered Plist file back to disk. Then you'll loop
over entries in a Plist file, get a dump of the NetInfo database, and
print all the users in the database using Perl foreach loops. To do that
you'll convert the Cocoa dictionaries and arrays to Perl hashes and
arrays. Finally, you'll create a Plist file from scratch, build the sample
Xgrid cal job listed in the Xgrid man page by creating the structure using
Perl hashes and arrays, and then convert them to Cocoa equivalents.

Calling Web Services Asynchronously
Making synchronous calls to web services can be problematic on occasion,
because they have the potential to cause considerable delay. The reason
for this is the manner in which synchronous calls work: the application
blocks the client until the web service call returns. To overcome the
necessity of having to wait for the web service response, we can call web
services asynchronously. Raj Makkapati walks you through how to call web
services asynchronously.

An Interview with Chris Date
Tony Williams conducted this interview with Chris Date shortly after the
release of his new book, Database in Depth: Relational Theory for
Practitioners, from O'Reilly. In this extensive conversation, Chris
debunks a lot of wrong information on "weaknesses of the relational
model"; discusses the impact of his classic book, The Third Manifesto,
with Hugh Darwen; evaluates the future of SQL as well as his past comments
on the language; and closes with his thoughts on the future of DBMSs.

Using Perl to Manage Plist Files
A common question is how to manage complex Plist files with scripts. The
defaults command, which is often used to manage simple values in Plist
files, does not easily manage the nested arrays or dictionaries that are
present in most Plist files. In this first article of a two-part series,
James Reynolds pulls together a little Perl and Cocoa to solve this
problem.

*** O'Reilly Network Top Five Articles Last Week ***

1. What Is FireWire (and How Best to Use It)
FireWire is a high-speed, data serial interface that has many practical
uses. In this article, you'll learn the ins and outs of this powerful
technology, plus some inside tips to take advantage of its unique
features.

2. Rolling with Ruby on Rails
The Ruby community is abuzz about Rails, a web application framework that
makes database-backed apps dead simple. What's the fuss? Is it worth the
hype? Curt Hibbs shows off Rails, building a simple application that even
non-Rubyists can follow.

3. Web Services Messaging with Apache Axis2: Concepts and Techniques
The messaging strategies needed for web services vary, and Apache Axis2
has addressed this problem by creating basic building blocks from which
many messaging schemes can be built. Srinath Perera and Ajith Ranabahu
show how it works.

5. Using Perl to Manage Plist Files
A common question is how to manage complex Plist files with scripts. The
defaults command, which is often used to manage simple values in Plist
files, does not easily manage the nested arrays or dictionaries that are
present in most Plist files. In this first article of a two-part series,
James Reynolds pulls together a little Perl and Cocoa to solve this
problem.

Mobile Gambling Devices May Soon Make Way to Casinos

[Keywords Matched: iPod PDA Laptop Sun]
It won't be long before gamblers are shooting dice while queued up waiting to see their favorite comedian. Or playing poker and roulette under a poolside umbrella. Even a trip to the buffet will no longer keep casino patrons from playing slots. A law signed last month by Gov. Kenny Guinn made Nevada the first U.S. state to approve the use of wireless, handheld gambling devices at its hotel-casinos.
