I just received word today that I was accepted as a speaker for SunnyConf, Arizona’s first Ruby conference, which will be held September 25, 2010. I’ll be giving a talk on “Leveraging Rails to Build Facebook Applications.” This is version 2.0 of the talk, incorporating major changes that were announced by Facebook at their F8 conference in April.
I felt my first earthquake this morning — like a freight train rumbling past my house just outside. It was a minor quake, just 3.6 on the Richter scale.
Site traffic for this blog hit a new high in June with more than 11,000 page views. I’m very pleased with the steady growth in traffic.
I just got “rate-limited” doing a search on Twitter for #RubyNation. This was the first time I’ve used Twitter in the past week because I’ve been busy with multiple projects. It’s also, by extension, the first and only search I’ve done in the past week. I have to say that either Twitter’s search is broken, or their algorithm for identifying people who need to be rate-limited is totally FUBAR.
Note: It turned out to be a widespread Twitter problem.
It looks like RubyNation will be doing an online photo contest using the Votridea Online Contest Platform (which I helped create). I’ll post more news as it becomes available.
