With that off my chest, I can move on to the real purpose for this post: The photo, taken at RailsConf 2007 and featured on the frontpage of the RailsConf 2008 site, has yours truly and Morten Christensen smack in the center!
Just got in. Looking forward to lots of fun in the coming days. I’ll be tumbling my notes at railsconf07.productive.dk.
If you need a freelancer for your (next) project, come find me and lets talk. If you don’t need a freelancer, come have a chat anyway ;)
InfoQ has an interesting article on whether specific technology knowledge matter when recruiting. The short answer: No—although most companies don’t realize this.
Make sure you check out the Flickr photo of a Ruby job ad, it got quite a few laughs at RailsConf.
I signed up for the conference and tutorials, so I’ll be in Portland from Wednesday evening through Sunday afternoon—probably missing the last keynotes since there doesn’t seem to be any flights back home later than 4 pm.
For a while I was planning on going to RailsConf Europe in Berlin instead, but after adding up the cost of going to Portland (conference fee, flights, hotel) I was surprised to find that it looks like it’ll be cheaper than last year trip to JAOO—which is just a 3 hour drive from where I live! But then JAOO prices are pretty steep.
Leave a comment or give me a call if you want to meet up in Portland.
