Here’s a preview of the new RubyNation 2014 logo. This year’s challenge was to integrate an iconic Washington DC landmark with the ubiquitous ruby gemstone motif that’s so prevalent in the Ruby language community.
A more line-oriented version of this logo is going to look awesome on the conference T-shirts next week.
I’m so glad Blip.tv raised their video size limit to 1.5 GB. Previously, it was 1 GB, and I had a devil of a time meeting that size limit with 45-minute RubyNation conference videos.
I’m now planning three conferences at the same time, DevIgnition, RubyNation and the Toastmasters District 29 Fall Conference. Just shoot me now!
Two new conference videos from RubyNation 2012 are available on Blip.tv — Aleksander Dabrowski and Mike Subelsky.
The organizers met at Vinifera last night for our annual conference retrospective and dinner. Great food, excellent wine, awesome friends. What more could you want for a good time?
RubyNation is like a microcosm of excellent talks, mind-blowing ideas, awesome food and great people. When it’s over, I’m simultaneously elated that we pulled off another great event and sad that it’s over.
Whew. Shirt orders for RubyNation 2012 have been submitted to CustomInk, and we spent a pile of money. Red T-shirts for attendees; black polos for speakers and organizers; and charcoal hoodies for organizers (by special request this year).
I’m very pleased that my own company, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, is sending ten people to RubyNation 2012.
The organizers met tonight and worked out the schedule for all of the talks at RubyNation 2012, which will be held March 23 – 24. I’m speaking right before the Saturday Closing Keynote by Corey Haines.
Tickets for RubyNation 2012 are on sale now. With RailsConf on the left side of the country, where else are you going to get your Ruby fix? The conference is March 23 – 24, 2012.
