Want to Stay With a Local?

We’re trying out a new program this year: “Stay with a Local”. If there’s interest, we’ll have volunteers host MWRC attendees, so you can stay with local Rubyists rather than at a hotel.

Contact @mwrc on Twitter or email the program’s facilitator (brandonhays [at] gmail [dot] com) to let us know you’re interested, and we’ll do our best to find a place for anyone who wants one.

Of course, we’ll pre-screen all hosts to ensure they’re not serial killers or Rebecca Black fans.

3rd Annual MWRC 5K

By popular demand (quite literally), the MWRC 5K is back for a third year!

It’s a fantastic time to get outside with some Rubyists, enjoy some mountain air, and if the past two years were any indication, show off your Vibram Five Fingers.

Thanks to our friends at Lead Media Partners, there will be prizes, and they’ll be given via random drawing rather than just to the fastest runners. Because if you can drag yourself out of bed early enough to run a 5K during a conference, you’ve already won.

You can find all the details and register on the 5K page.

Whether you’re trying to fulfill your New Year’s resolution or you’re looking for an excuse to get outdoors, we think you’ll find the 5K to be one of the most fun and memorable parts of MWRC.

Even if you’re not a runner, it’s worth waking up to come run (or walk) around a lake in Utah at sunrise with super cool Rubyists from around the country. Seriously, how awesome is that?

So go now and register for the 5K!

MWRC 2/3 Full, Workshops Disappearing Fast

Each year, it seems MWRC sells out a bit faster, and 2012 is no exception. We’re currently about two-thirds full already, on pace to start turning people away earlier than we had to last year.

We really want you here, but we also choose a venue that keeps the conference relatively small and intimate. That means that you’ll need to move muy rapido to ensure you have a spot!

The Saturday workshops are extremely limited, and are fast becoming unavailable. The OOP in Ruby workshop is already overbooked and no longer available, and the others are filling up quickly.

Your best bet is to register now. We’ve never been more excited for a lineup of speakers than we are in 2012, and the stage is set for a conference packed with insight and fun.

We’re so psyched about the caliber of speakers, workshop instructors, and attendees coming together this year. Let us reiterate: we want you here. So please register now and don’t miss out!

We have some amazing presentations and workshops for you in 2012. So don’t delay and register now!
