About Arie

Arie was explaining Ruby at Ruby Seminar in PT INTI Bandung West Java Indonesia (2008)

Call me “Ree” (one syllable), SIMPLE and EASY, just like that! REE! When I didn’t hear you called my name for the first time, then you might want to call me “ARI” (two syllables / just like a Dutch or German name). I’m a Ruby Hobbyist.

    Arie , sampeyan itu bener bener “amusing” baru tau saya ada “nerd” yang kocak. Have fun with lifes and stuffs like …Ruby ? hm..yes, whatever it is.

    Trinita

    Ah… Bu Nita yg baik…

    Semoga sehat & sukses aja selalu semuanya ya…

  4. Just a friendly reminder, FYI buat yang nyari-nyari resource ruby, cari-cari tutorial bagaimana cara belajar ruby, gimana cara belajar rails yang fun, pengenalan ruby secara menyeluruh, ingin menggunakan ruby secara komprehensif, ingin develop situs dengan ruby on rails, ingin tau seluk beluk ruby (termasuk rails) lebih dalam, tutorial ruby, tutorial rails, rails itu apa, ruby itu apa, pengenalan pemrograman ruby, pengenalan rails (mulai dari tingkat pemula bahkan sampai tingkat yang dalam-dalam hackingnya), gunakan text box search di pojok kiri atas blog ini dan pancangkan mata di link-link di samping kanan kiri blog ini. Kalau tidak mau ketinggalan, cara yg paling enak pakai Google Reader seperti yg sudah diterangkan disini

    Nah kan.. Gw bilang juga apa! Lumayan banyak juga yang pada pake Google Reader Hidup Ruby Indonesia! Hidup Rails Indonesia!

    Ada tutorial google reader pakai bahasa indonesia yang mudah dan jelas mengikutinya langkah demi langkah ;-)

    Bu Edratna

    Howah ada Ibu sudi mampir ke blog saya yg apa adanya ini.. Wah, kalau ke blog Ibu, bahkan saya bukan sekedar mampir saja Bu, bahkan blog Ibu sudah masuk di feed saya karena selalu sering berisi informasi yang jitu tepat sasaran dg apa yg saya cari-cari. Bahkan saya sering klik link share biar bisa dibaca sama temen2 yang pada ngikutin baca lagi google reader saya nih disini, trus kalau yang langsung suka makan-makan sama feed langsung tancep disini. Sama-sama terima kasih Bu.

    Hallo Arie, wah..saya jadi mampir di Blog Arie nih karena Arie juga udah mampir ke blogku. Saya adiknya Bu Edratna. Saya ngajar di univ yang katanya CS-nya terbaik di Indonesia (kategori PTS, bukan PTN), tapi saya jarang ketemu orang yang bisa kayak Arie gini di antara mahasiswa2 saya..

    I wish all of my students were like you, Arie, so we can talk a lot about : LISP, SmallTalk, Postgres, Apple, etc. which is very rare in my univ since they are mostly WinTel (=Windows+Intel) people..

    I am just wondering what will you be in my age now, 51, since at my age now I consider all of the programming things as “dirty job”.. ;-(

    tridjoko

    Hai :-) oo adiknya Bu Enny to… senang bisa bersua.

    I guess I still shall be a plain guy at my 51 just like now (if I’m alive).

  14. Edratna says:

    Arie,

    Rasanya saya bersalah banget deh…Arie sering mampir ke blog ku, beri komentar, tapi begitu aku buka blogmu, bingung mau beri komentar.
    Aku pikir diriku sendiri aja, tetapi adikku (http://triwahjono.wordpress.com) dan anakku berpendapat sama. Gpp ya…yang penting ditengoki kok, daripada komentar tapi ga nyambung.

    Bu Edratna

    Jangan khawatir, tenang aja, ngga pa pa lagi :-)

    Om, klu boleh saran, itu halaman depanna jangan full article, dunx..
    Summary ajah, biar gag bingung bacana, n ngehemad bandwidth :D

    Anyway, salam kenal ;)
    *komentardulubarubaca*

    KaiToU

    Sama-sama salam kenal. Oh iya, oke deh, coba nanti kalau saya sempat akan saya membuatkan ringkasan – bagus juga idenya supaya juga buat saya lebih mudah mengambil inti dari isi setiap posting (karena selama ini, saya selalu saja mengandalkan fitur search untuk mencari catatan-catatan tercecer / perintah2x komputer yang saya gak hapal atau sudah lupa). Makasih buat sarannya.

  16. Ueeeedaaaaann……
    Sebelum saya masuk blog Arie ini, saya pikir saya dah ‘pinter banget’, bisa 4 bahasa, ternyata setelah dapet info ttg Arie dari temen kamu yg pernah share kamar kos (ooops keceplosan…heheh ), Arie bisa 8 bahasa PLUS this ‘world of ruby’….whew…….dumbfounded……

    Numpang baca-baca ya, jadi pengen tau aja apa sih Ruby itu…..

    Mach’s gut !

    Evi

    Bigets! Wish I know how to speak German so that we can practice :-) German is my next plan actually after mastering Russian, the more I told people that I’m still learning, the more they usually said: we also still learn. We never stop learning. But one thing I want to emphasize is the different level of what we achieve for sure, eh? That I’m still at a crawling baby level…

    Salam kenal ya Evi :-) Danke.

  17. byeol says:

    kok kayanya dari tadi saya baca sampe ke bawah, ga ketauan ini sampeyan dari angkatan berapa? udah berapa tahun main programming, Rie?

    byeol

    I’ve been programming for more than 11 years. Refer to my profile for more detail info or let’s just meet to see my resume, products that we coded, and have discussions regarding elegant source codes. Cheers!

    RIE, Rie, Ri? Confused. Yes!
    I came to your site the other day but hardly knew where I was. You see I am an “ancient” citizen of the world and did not grow up in the computer generations. I do not know if I can find this again. If not leave the description with Alex my friend who is trying his DAMNEDEST to learn english. I think he will. In fact he already has [learned english] he only needs to polish it a bit.

    Ri, I am a political JUNKY and we are having our presidential election here in America. I am looking for information on who “Barrak Obama” is. He says he has never had another name. He even swore to that on his ABA (American Bar Association) he is a lawyer. However, he has a stepfather by the name of Lola Soetoro of Indonesia. His mother’s name (deceased) was an American named Ann Dunhamm. She married Lola Soetoro (I think also deceased) somewhere around 1966 +or -. Barrak Obama (American name) a/k/a Barry Soetoro, can you do a google search there and find his “Karty Tanda Pendudaks”? I am a democrat and he claims to be a democrat, but I think he is a phoney. He has some friends who were very bad people (Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn

    harvey

    Yes, you can call me, RIE, rie, Ri, whatever makes you easier to call me. Many non-Indonesian people also just call me Ari (yup, like European name without “E” at the last word)

    Did you know Obama had spent his life in Jakarta Indonesia? ;-) There’s also an Indonesian group with so many members in Facebook that supports Obama you know…

    Oh, about abudiyanto (alex), you gotta be his good and patient English teacher, ah :-)

  20. harvey says:

    Oh hell I hit the wrong key–sorry about that. :)

    harvey

    no worries. you’re still much better than hopeless spammers, scammers, and other trolls (LOL)

  21. @harvey,

    Anyway, it’s not “Karty Tanda Pendudaks” to say Indonesian ID. It’s “Kartu Tanda Penduduk” or abbreviated as “KTP”

  22. harvey says:

    Okay, so I will call you REE, except short Re. The KTP, I copied from another site. I do not know Indonesian. Years ago I knew some Japanese, some Spanish ( actually, Mexican), some Okinawan (similar to Japanese), some Filipeno ( similar, I think to italian). But don’t ask me anything in those languages today because I never practiced them and now I can’t remember. Li yo? :). I never was in one place long enough to really learn very much of the languages. I liked all the different kinds of food though. I was never in Indonesia except for maybe Borneo and new Guinea and wasn’t there long enough to make it worth mentioning.
    So you are all over Indonesia ? Computer programming? I know very little about computers. I have been in the oil industry most of my life, from Alaska (60 miles across the Bering Straight to Russia), to Florida (southern tip of USA), Drilling rigs, Pipeline construction, petrochemical plants, just name it , if it is oil field related then most likely I have been it . One company wanted to send me to Saudi Arabia as a drilling consultant years ago. But the region was so unstable I said no, I like living better than I like money. Besides when you come back into the states the tax on your earned money was too much. How did you come to get into working with computers? I would like to be able to send people animal images and/or nice pictures (not photos) that I come across on the internet. I like computers, for me they are a good past time and about all I can do with one is find interesting material to read and keep up with world affairs. Our news media in the states has gotten so one sided it is no good.
    Ri if you want to read ordinary english and get a general idea how Americans talk GOOGLE “NO QUARTERS” and read the political comments. LOL! I should send that to Alex. You can post comments there. Mostly the people there do not like me, but that is okay, I understand that most all of them are younger than I and they are lacking in EXPERIENCE. LOL. The majority of them are women and they think their woman , Hillary Clinton, should have won the nomination for their party , but she didn’t. So now they are ready to fight and they are angry with men in general. Sounds like my wife haha, YES. That is why I was asking about Obama. I was curious if he is still an Indonesian citizen. Because if he is he would not be eligable to be president. He will not show his birth certificate because he was given another certificate when he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro of Jakarta Indonesia. Some thinks he is still and Indonesian citizen.
    So what activities do you like? My favorites are gardening, fishing, EATING, and reading on this computer (the latter is the new past time). Also I like Theological Evolution. I mean I think there is a God that created the universe and all that is in it including LIFE, and I think He did it SCIENTIFICALLY. I think God scientifically begin the process of evolution that brought us to where we are today. OKAY I just wanted to say that and now I wont mention God anymore because I know God can be a tough arguement sometimes . LOL! BTW it started raining again and I am stuck inside again today. Where I live was once recognized on the maps as a rain forest. LATER.
    Mexican for goodgye–ADIOS Amigo –goodbye friend– until later. :)

    harvey

    Okay, so I will call you REE, except short Re.

    That’s also good :-) I like when my “blond” friends said: “Ah that’s easier for me to say” as long as it still sounds like my name.

    The KTP, I copied from another site. I do not know Indonesian. Years ago I knew some Japanese, some Spanish ( actually, Mexican), some Okinawan (similar to Japanese), some Filipeno ( similar, I think to italian).

    Howaa, interesting! I was born in Borneo. East Borneo exactly.

Our news media in the states has gotten so one sided it is no good.

    I’ve been to almost all islands and provinces in Indonesia, except Bali, other than Makassar (Ujung Pandang) in Sulawesi island, all Sumatera island, and Irian.

    I like living better *and* having much money ;-)

    It all came from my hobbies to computer programming language. Heyya, you can use Flickr to share pictures.

    I also have families that work in the oil industry. I got a cousin who work in Schlumberger in Balikpapan (East Kalimantan). I got an uncle who work in Pertamina (Perusahaan Minyak / or Indonesian Oil Company). And many others.

    I’ll check that out.

    Interesting, mine also EATING :-)) I would love to learn gardening although I think my top hobby is having fun with computers with my like-minded friends (also with computers). LOL yup God can be a tough argument sometimes.

    OK, Adios too, Take care!

  23. harvey says:

    arie—- ooops I meant Re

    I am trying to learn some simple HTML codes. I have a couple of sites that have examples and explanations. Do you know a good site for HTML codes? I think you would know which are the better sites to learn from. I begin this once before but I keep getting side tracked and even more confused. It seems when I know just a small amount about a thing I am worse off than if I didn’t know anything at all. Will appreciate it if you can direct me to the most simple basic beginners site you know of. BTW I posted on alex site to both you and alex. Of course you know that because you subscribed to his site. But just so you know it was intended for both of you.

    later friend

    harvey

    Let’s see, just let me know how simple and easy to follow links I give you below, feel free to trace deeper and deeper from there :-)) Have Fun!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Html Check also See Also and External links on that wikipedia page

    You can get popular and hottest topic discussing about “learning html” on delicious

    You can get the first ranking article about how to learn html fast

    Remember to subscribe also to social networking sites we do, so we can keep in touch on those sites sharing many favourite things we like ;-)

    Anyway, those sites contain many html codes and tags discussion, don’t you want to use a tool like Dreamweaver or any others to ease you? Well I know it’s bad to rely on those tools, but you can always learn by lurking html codes produced by a tool like Dreamweaver. If you’re interested in Programming Language, try to learn Ruby ;-) Let’s see how your progress would be, many more-than-40-year-old-people said that Ruby is very much like English. I have many friends who didn’t code ruby and even not a coder before (so yeah, a guy like you), like a graphic designer, can grasp ruby pretty quickly.

    Alright, I guess that’s it, feel free to share your progress and sites with me :-))

    nice personality….and great blog….

    Thanks!

  25. Yoga says:

    Tok tok tok … permisi mas … saya explorer artikel yang mas bahas di situs/blog ini bahasanya cukup tinggi bagi seorang blogger seperti saya ini jadi mesti peres otak lebih :D
    Bagus apa yang di bahas tapi kok udah mulai jarang update ya mas ?
    Makasih dan salam kenal :)

    • Arie Keren says:

      Ya, Yoga, makasi juga feedbacknya dan sama-sama salam kenal.

      Untuk bahasa yang disebut-sebut cukup tinggi itu mungkin lebih baik diklarifikasikan saja ya di tiap tulisan/halaman di comment, supaya mungkin saya edit/dipermudah, saya sendiri kurang setuju akan penggunaan jargon-jargon njlimet tapi malah bikin komunikasi inefektif. Jadi kalau saya bilang malah tulisan-tulisan disini sering saya edit/update. Walau tentu saya sangat setuju akan jargon yang bila sesuai dipakai di komunitasnya justru akan membuat hasil komunikasi menjadi lebih efisien.

      Untuk New Resources (bahasa gampangnya anggep aja: postingan atau eksperimen baru), Refer/ikuti link di halaman Resource saja, ya (liat link bagian atas).

      (1) Saya dari dulu sering lebih sreg dengan model wiki ketimbang model blog, sampai-sampai media ini saya jadikan seperti wiki juga, tapi kelihatannya pada banyak yang ga bisa ngikuti, terbukti walau sering saya update tapi pada ngira lama ga di update. Link yang di StackExchange itu berguna banget juga buat belajar proaktif (liat bagian bawah). Model di SE tsb adalah penggabungan 4 macam model (termasuk blog dan wiki), jadi resource tsb jauh lebih berharga ketimbang tulisan saya IMHO. Makanya sampai saya bikin linknya warna warni begitu disini.


      profile for Ari on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

      (2) Model blog pada umumnya kebanyakan basa-basi namun kurang berisi (saya tidak bilang semuanya, lho ya) dibanding wiki, saya cenderung meng-compact (apa bahasa Indonesianya compact? kurang lebih membuat ringkas, singkat, padat, begitu) tulisan saya sendiri disini (lagi-lagi seperti model wiki wiki/padahal sepertinya umumnya edukasi pengguna internet masih jauh lebih banyak yang lebih familiar dengan blog). Dengan kata lain, saya cenderung memiliki media kecil namun bisa saya maklumi kualitasnya, daripada banyak update namun kurang kualitas. Namun lain lagi konteksnya kalau saya melihat untuk RubyInside, karena satu blog RI tsb diurusi keroyokan banyak orang di komunitasnya, bisa digolongkan ke dalam sering update dan berkualitas. Makanya saya ambil langkah moderat, yaitu merekomendasikan StackExchange buat yang ingin belajar sambil praktik, selain reward poinnya termasuk badgesnya juga menarik, tuh. ;-)

      (3) Atau ide lain, apa mau yang sering tandang kemari untuk juga partisipasi pingin menulis tentang Ruby disini? Selama ini saya diam saja karena saya pikir anak-anak Ruby Indonesia sudah pada ng-update di medianya masing-masing (media disini, baca: ya facebook, ya twitter, ya blog, ya wiki, ya text file yang di dump di server masing-masing, ya catetan sendiri yang di localhost, ya youtube, ya github, ya gist, ya sourceforge, dan banyak lagi media-media lain). Kalau emang tertarik ya boleh, nanti saya kasih otorisasi untuk itu, kita bisa saling share dan review tulisan nanti ya ;-)

      (4) Sekalian woro-woro, untuk kegiatan yang offline, coba perhatikan siapa yang lagi rajin ng-update milis id-ruby di yahoogroup.

      Selamat proaktif bereksperimen, anak muda Indonesia! Semoga tercapai cita-citanya, ya.

  26. Mulyanto says:

    Woooooooooooohh ……….. Pak Arie diam-diam makin sukses terus aja neeeh keliling-keliling dunia lage.

    Punten mo nanya ……. Apa kelebihannya belajar di StackOverFlow dari forum?

  27. Arie Keren says:

    Pak Mulyanto,

    Kelebihan-kelebihan StackOverflow (selanjutnya saya singkat dengan “SO”) dibanding Forum + Wiki + Blog + Milis + Crowd adalah:

    1. Navigasi dan User Experience SO mudah digunakan.

    2. Mudah melakukan kontrol thread pertanyaan yang belum dijawab, sehingga dapat jelas dilihat bila ada pertanyaan yang belum dapat solusinya.

    2.a. Di SO hampir tidak pernah ada omong kosong (baca: OT). Si penanya dapat dengan mudah untuk mem-flag jawaban yang tidak berhubungan sama sekali dengan pertanyaan. Omong kosong disini, misalkan, ga ada hujan ga ada petir tau-tau ada yang ngomong “baju batik”, atau “memancing teri di Gunung Semeru”, atau yang parah yang troll. Jadi singkat cerita, kalo uda pada kebanyakan bullshit di SO biasanya di-mati-in sama komunitas rame-rame secara objektif, bisa juga sama Moderator-moderatornya (rame-rame juga secara objektif).

    2.b. Kalau pertanyaannya perlu di-improve maka yang lebih senior bisa ngedit supaya maksud dari si penanya bisa lebih jelas dengan harapan akan ada yang bisa njawab.

    2.c. Kalau pertanyaannya jelek, entah karena kualitas pertanyaannya cuma nge-troll, nge-junk, ato ng-OT. Siapa saja bisa dengan mudah kasih flag (pemberitahuan) ke Moderator, biar diurusin. Kalo bilang si Moderator, si penanya jelek emang jelek, maka pertanyaannya (bisa juga berupa jawabannya) bakal disikat ama dia, kalo pertanyaannya sebetulnya bagus cuma perlu diperbaiki tata bahasa Inggrisnya, maka ya dia (si Moderator) urusin juga.

    2.d. Kalau pertanyaannya bagus, user yang sudah berkompeten untuk memberi jempol (kalau jempol sih istilah Facebook ya, kalau di SO istilahnya upvote). Dan ini berkaitan dengan poin ke 4.

    3. Sekalian posting di SO sekalian belajar bahasa Inggris. Hari gini mau nggak mau musti bisa ngomong Inggris, mau nggak mau musti baca hasil riset yang berbahasa Inggris karena buku-buku lokal biasanya sudah telat (kecuali kalo emang ada orang yg dasarnya suka bertelat ria, ya, itu sih pilihan hidup dia sendiri). Risetnya dimana? Ya di Googling! Banyak kok yang Inggrisnya ancur di SO tapi PEDE aja namanya juga belajar ya musti salah, kalo selalu nggak salah-salah itu namanya uda nggak belajar! Malah ada aja tu yang berbaik hati ngedit pertanyaan kita kalau Inggris kita ancur biar Inggrisnya jadi baekan. Nah nah, jadi disini nih kita bisa bandingin kesalahan Inggris kita sebelumnya dengan membetulkannya menurut versi yang sudah diperbaiki sama English Native Speaker.

    4. Apresiasinya jelas. Jika Anda berkompetensi menjawab pertanyaan di SO maka apresiasinya jelas. Bahkan jika Anda berkompetensi untuk bertanya “saja” di SO apresiasinya pun jelas. “Kepala Anda tidak akan diinjak” saat Anda berkompetensi berbicara benar. Biasanya musti ada saja user yang memberikan kepercayaannya (trust) kepada Anda berupa “upvote“. Upvote disini tidaklah sekedar upvote, tetapi poin di profile SO Anda akan mendapat tambahan 10. Tapi apresiasi ini tidak hanya berhenti sampai di poin reward (reward maksudnya artinya apresiasi atau penghargaan) sini saja. Nanti kalau poin di profile SO Anda sudah 160-an ke atas, Anda akan bisa “memasang bounty“, ini semacam “pasang saham” atau “nge-modalin” pertanyaan. Jadi misalkan Anda punya pertanyaan yang menurut Anda penting banget dan mendesak, pokoknya harus ada yang bisa ngasi solusi. Nah itulah saatnya Anda pasang bounty ke pertanyaan Anda sendiri, nah, nanti pertanyaan Anda akan dipasang di tempat teratas jadi pertanyaan Anda akan dilihat orang banyak. Selain itu juga, “Anda tidak akan terlalu ditinggi-tinggikan”, misalnya Anda ngerti mbikin website, orang ya mengapresiasi Anda dengan hal itu saja, orang (orang-orang/komunitas di SO, maksud saya) tidak akan memaksakan kehendaknya kepada Anda dengan bertanya misalkan tentang bagaimana mengimprove algoritma internal ranking result

    5. Anda cukup memperhatikan interest Anda saja, lain tidak. Misalkan kalau Anda cuma tertarik pada “Ruby” saja atau “Nokia” saja, dan tidak pada “.NET”, maka Anda dapat melakukannya di SO. Fitur ini mungkin saja meniru-niru Perlmonks, komunitas Perl ini saya lihat lebih matang, di Perlmonks ini bahkan kita bisa set kalau kita tidak usah lihat postingan si X, sedang di SO tidak, ada sistem flag untuk close, tapi thread tsb masih kelihatan, kecuali kalau thread tsb dihapus. Jadi cuma mirip meniru model forum biasa.

    Udah lebih jelasnya Anda tinggal gabung aja GRATIS di SO trus aktif aja ngelmu di SO. OK?!

  28. Anda masih aktif dalam dunia ruby/rails? Komunitas ruby/rails Indonesia bergabung di mana (dunia maya/nyata)? Thanks.

    @Eddie

    Masih
