In California, for Rails Seminar

Posted by Mon, 02 Oct 2006 17:25:00 GMT

Sitting in my hotel room in downtown San Francisco, CA. Mr. London himself, James Adam (of Rails Engine fame)... and I have been spending some time wandering around the area, which is where I grew up. We ventured over to Berkeley and down the coast to Santa Cruz yesterday. :-)

We then took the Cable Car late last night…

Today, we’re heading down to Santa Clara, CA to check-in at AjaxWorld Conference and Expo, where we will both be speaking tomorrow at their Ruby on Rails seminar.

Congrats to Steven Baker…who got married this weekend?! He’ll be meeting us in Santa Clara later and speaking tomorrow as well.

If you’re going to be at the conference, be sure to introduce yourself. :-)

It must be summer and I must be busy as I haven’t been posting much of anything on my blog over the past two months. Please forgive me! :-)

Just a quick mention that I’ve been invited to speak at the Ruby on Rails Seminar, to be held on Tuesday, October 3, colocated with the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo, October 2-4, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.

I’ll be presenting a new talk with an oh-so-familiar topic… Rails meets the Legacy-World. It’ll be nice to get to share the stage with some of my favorite Rails colleagues… such as Steven Baker, Joe O’Brien, and Michael Buffington.
