Silicon Valley Ruby Conference

I’ll be spending the weekend at the Silicon Valley Ruby Conference being organized by SDForum. I got interested in Ruby because the AJAX libraries uzanto uses (prototype and scriptaculous) come from the ruby on rails world, and are awesome).
But in the last few weeks I’ve been hacking with Ruby on Rails itself for a new project I’m working on. The experience has left me very impressed with Ruby (an elegent little object oriented language) and especially with Ruby on Rails (a wicked cool web app framework). Anyway, this conference should be good, and it’s local and reasonably priced. So if you’re in the bay area and looking to get your Ruby on, see ya Saturday!

    Hey Jon,
    Great to see you hacking with Rails.
    Hope to see you back in Delhi soon… so we could have a RubyCon too…. like the awesome barcamp we had.

    Hey Manik!
    Yeah that would be great. I’m having a good time with Ruby. The scary thing is how productive you can be BEFORE becoming proficient.
    Hitting roadblocks with 3rd normal form database designs currently (has_and_belongs_to_many is misbehaving with me). I’m still at the stage where, when the “magic” breaks, I have trouble moving forward. ;->
