Thank You!

This year's conference is over, and we want to thank all the attendees, speakers, and sponsors! We had a terrific conference and are looking forward to next year!


Session Videos

Confreaks have gone above and beyond and already have videos from the conference posted. You can find links from either from the speakers page, schedule page, or the video site.

We'll let you know when new videos are posted using our twitter channel.

Another Noble Cause

We are proud to announce that we raised $100 for the Steven Baker Scotland on Rails fund by selling the extra t-shirts we had printed for the conference. You can read more about this cause on Giles' blog, or you can donate here.

A Noble Cause

This weekend we decided to match the first $500 donated to the Ruby Mendicant program to get important libraries updated for 1.9. What surprised us was that it took literally 15 minutes for our goal to be reached. Thanks guys!

If you haven't given already, you can donate here.

Last Minute Registration

Folksonomies of Scale

Are you ready for this weekend? We sure are, and we are set to have an awesome conference! If you are going to be casting your experiences over the weekend, we suggest tagging your content with "mtnwestrubyconf". The you can find other blog posts on technorati, photos on flickr, bookmarks on del.ici.ous, and maybe someone will even post some videos on youtube. If you are using twitter, follow @hashtags and put "#mtnwestrubyconf" in your tweets to tag them to show up on hashtags.

Schedule Released

Bowing to the tremendous and overwhelming pressure for a daily schedule, we have decided to release one. Enjoy. :)

Announcing Video Capture

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Confreaks again this year to record and distribute the conference proceedings for free. We are proud to provide this service to the community, and literally could not have done this without the support of our wonderful sponsors! Thanks guys!
