I could go through each session and say what I learned, but I think going to these conferences should be more about the overall impression than about the nitty gritty details. I wanted to meet as many people as possible and take in as much information as I could.
I got to meet a lot of great people like Scott Parker, Andy Maleh, Rachel Heaton, and Nick Lewis. But the one thing I got from the conference is that the demand for Rails developers is growing, and growing fast. All of the companies that were there (Groupon, Obtiva, Hashrocket, etc..) were hiring new talent, which is pretty amazing considering the economy.
My thoughts are confirmed by this article by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Quote of the Day: “So, your corporate culture sounds great … for bachelors” – Sara Trice in response to Hashrocket presentation on Team Building
Word of the Day: “Rehacktoring” – Jake Scruggs
Interesting Note: Apple was a sponsor of the conference

CodeMash is just around the corner and thanks to the good folks at telerik, I will be one of about 700 people attending the conference. I will be tweeting from the conference and posting recaps of sessions and happenings with an occasional picture or two. I might blog from the lazy river, who knows!
As of now, here is the list of sessions I would like to attend, along with backup sessions:
4:45 PM: Testing ASP.NET Applications Using Ruby (Ben Hall)
1:45 PM: IronPython with ASP.NET (Chris Sutton) OR Credit Crunch Code: Time to Pay Back the Technical Debt (Gary Short)
This will be my first large conference. I’ve attended a few other conferences like the Iowa Code Camp and Chicago Code Camp. This will be a new experience for me and I hope that I will get a lot out of it. I am looking forward to meeting the people I follow on twitter too. This should be a great time.
See you in Sandusky!
