RailsConf 2009: Viva Las Vegas!

Posted by David

RailsConf 2009 is now open for registration. We’re going to Las Vegas this year. More precisely the Las Vegas Hilton from May 4th through 7th. It’s going to be a party for sure.

There has been such an incredible amount of activity since last year. We have the merging of Merb back into Rails, Rails 2.2 and 2.3, and probably a good showing of Rails 3.0. So we should be absolutely packed for great content this year.

It’s going to be hard to top 2008, though. I really thought that was a fantastic show. Great lineup of proposals, great speakers, and a great sense of community. Which is pretty hard to do when you have almost 2,000 people gathered. So we’ll try extra hard this year to outdo it.

So I hope to see many familiar and new faces this year. We have early registration open until March 16th, so you can save up to $200 by getting it done early.

Don’t forget to get your speaker proposal in either. You have until February 17th.

See you all in Vegas!
