RubyConf 2011

RubyConf 2011 was a blast. It was great to meet other Rubyists, get a ton of T-shirts (no really, I got 8 or so), and talk Aaron Patterson into giving Jonathan Magen a special message.

If you weren’t able to go, I pushed my notes up to a public GitHub wiki. A couple others from Hedgeye are adding their notes as well, so with those (plus the Confreaks videos when those guys finally have access to a reliable Internet connection), it’s almost like you were there.
