We have started using Trello for organizing a project at Kisko Labs and to follow my Pivotal Tracker to OmniFocus adapter I created a similar for Trello.
You can specify which lists of cards are considered done so that moving a card to a “Done” list will mark them done also in OmniFocus when syncing.
To start using it, simply install the gem and start sync:
$ gem install omnifocus-trello
$ of sync
On the first run the sync will create
~/.omnifocus-trello.yml file. Follow the instructions in the file to get a Trello access token. After completing the instructions and filling the needed information, just re-run
of sync and it will do the first sync. After that you can run
of sync any time and it will update the OmniFocus data.
The code is available at GitHub.

It has been amazing to see and be part of Linda’s child growing up from a small workshop at Kisko Labs offices to a worldwide movement in more than 80 locations. I wanna publicly thank Linda, Karri, Henrietta and Terence for all the great work they have done for the community!
I attended Rails Girls Krakow workshop and the Rails Berry conference couple of weeks ago for the second time. It was great to see how much has happened in a year. This year all the Rails Girls event organizers and coaches were local (if you don’t count me and Mislav). The lightning talks were given in Polish which made sense since that was the strongest language of most of the attendees. Also two of the coaches of the workshop were attendees of the last year’s workshop. Really inspiring!
If you are interested in providing women with a inspiring introduction to the world of technology, go and check out the Rails Girls site to find out where things are happening and how to get involved.

Time for some nitpicking. Blog posts are not blogs. Saying “I wrote a new blog” doesn’t make sense. You are talking about a blog post (or article if you prefer). Blog is the place where you publish your blog posts.
It seems this battle is already lost, so many internet-savvy people are already using the word wrong let alone web beginners. The new meaning might be here to stay so this short blog post is my last battlecry before starting to reprogram my brain for the new meaning.

Dustin Curtis wrote about the usage of words “my” and “your” in software. Should an interface say “my profile” or “your profile”? He goes through the implications of using either option and arrives to the conclusion that you should always use the form “your profile”.
I agree with his reasoning but could think of an exception to his final conclusion of always going with “your profile”. In certain cases using “my” can be in order in games. In cases when the player plays as a certain character in the game, when viewing the items the character is carrying, they could be labeled as “My inventory”. I’m the player, immersed in the game acting as a character and the items are “my items”.
There might be other examples where the software experience is so immersive that the usage of “my” is the right choice, but like Curtis says, usually the user is transacting with an interface so it’s better to use “your”.

Kippt is a service to save, search and share the stuff from the web. I started working on a Ruby gem to use the Kippt API while being at the Railsberry conference and released the gem few months ago.
Kippt’s team got accepted to Y Combinator’s Summer 2012 batch. To celebrate this I took the time today to get rid of some of the sharp edges of the library and improve the test suite.
I’m also calling it stable and releasing the 1.0. Documentation and code can be found on the project’s Github page. Check it out!
