When I first heard about the Ruby on Ales conference at McMenamins, I instantly thought it had something to so with the brewery's tasty brew Ruby Ale. On the contrary, Ruby on Ales is a single-track conference focused on the Ruby programming language and hosted by Northwest Ruby, Inc. For those of us who aren't that tech savvy, Ruby is an open source programming language known for it's simplicity and productivity.
On March 24 and 25 some of the best Ruby developers visit Bend to deliver world-class talks in an intimate setting. The conference expects to draw 140 attendees and will take place in the theater at McMenamins Old St. Francis School. Featured speakers include leading Ruby experts Aaron Patterson, Jim Weirich, Jim Remsik and Rein Henrichs and more.
Attendees can expect to receive in-depth training on Ruby programming, plenty of bandwidth, and there's no doubt McMenamins' Ruby Ale will be flowing (and Hammerhead, Terminator, etc.).
