Disappearing Button

A light-weight hands-on-coding kinda post this one, and that too not in a mainstream language, Grails. The use case is a familiar one on social networking sites like facebook or linkedin.

Let's say you have pending friendship/connection requests. Adjacent to each username you will have a button ("Accept"). Once you click the button and the server has done its job, you will see text in place of the button saying something like "Mr. X is now a connection". I call this pattern as the disappearing button pattern.

Startup Saturday Event And Thoughts

It’s always a refreshing experience to attend startup gatherings. I mean, as opposed to the ones held by corporates in which people parrot lines off of standard ppts. Headstart conducts a startup event every 2nd Saturday of the month, across major cities. I attended July’s session last Saturday (14-Jul-12).

First Post on Blogger

Until now by blog home was http://mahboob.livejournal.com

Initially, there was one problem with LiveJournal. When I made updates to a particular entry, it used to take hours (felt like ages) to sync up with the logged out view. That is, I could see the changes when I logged into my account. But if I logged out, I would see the older version of the post.
