Just occurred to me today that there’s only about one month left
until the Third International Ruby Conference (www.rubyconf.org). Time to finalize
little details like name tags and t-shirts.

If you’re interested in programming—Ruby or not—this is a
great conference to attend. The first conference (2001) was one of the best
computer geek gatherings I’ve been to. We had language designers, XP
people, and a bunch of really smart people with a bunch of really good
ideas. You’re guaranteed to leave the conference with new found
inspiration.

For some idea of what has gone on in the past:

Registration ends on October 24, but if you miss it you can still get
in—foodless—by registering late or just showing up.

See you there?
