I’m going to blast of a flurry of blogging starting with Ruby on Rails news in Vancouver. Last week I attended a mini workshop on getting started on Rails.
I was amazed to see a room full of people in Vancouver listening to a presentation about Ruby on Rails. It makes sense, since Vacouver was the host of the first ever Rails Conference. There’s just a huge difference in going from being a Rails fanboy gazing through your LCD looking glass at this marvelous world and being actually in and among people who are into Rails.
I didn’t manage to meet any of the people there except for Nathaniel Brown , the presenter, because I had to navigate the maze that was UBC and get back home to my family. Still I hope to meet more of the Vancouver Ruby community and get out there and spread the excitement about Rails.
