Ruby Hoedown – Huntsville, AL – August 8 & 9 (and a Canadian event too)

By Peter Cooper / May 8, 2008


Yee-haw! The Ruby Hoedown enters its second year, taking place in Huntsville, Alabama on August 8th and 9th, 2008. It's billed as the "Ruby conference for the South" and is sponsored by Engine Yard. Keynote speakers so far are David A. Black (of Ruby Central fame) and Chris Wanstrath (of GitHub fame). Registration is $149 until June 2nd.

And a Bonus: Toronto Rails Project Night!

The Toronto Rails Project Night is a much smaller affair than the Ruby Hoedown, but definitely deserves some attention if you're in or near Toronto, Canada. The 5th one is being held next week on Tuesday, May 13th. It's being held in the TSOT office at 151 Bloor Street West, Suite 1130, Toronto. You can submit an RSVP on FaceBook or e-mail corina.newby [-at-] The event kicks off at 5.45pm, a few presentations are planned, and a crawl to a nearby pub is expected afterwards.

    Thanks for the shout out, Pete. FYI we'll soon have a website aimed at organizing tech/programmer events in the Greater Toronto Area. We figure having events and info in one place makes sense, however getting the word spread on other sites is a great help! will be up and running soon. In the meantime, best of luck with the Hoedown and maybe see you in Toronto...

    Corina :)
