Just to clear up any possible confusion on that matter: Yes. There will be a 2008 Rails Rumble. And no. It will not be in May. Probably September or October.
We have a lot of great ideas (thanks to everyone that participated and commented) that will improve on last year’s experience dramatically and the whole team is looking forward to it, in a big way. More information coming soon, I promise, as well as an announcement, new blog, and specific details prior to Railsconf.
Oh, and speaking of Railsconf… Josh Owens, of TastyPlanner fame (last year’s grand prize winner), is giving what looks to be a fun talk about their experience building a kickass app in a 48 hour timeframe. If you’re going to be there, you ought to check it out. Especially if you’re interested in participating this year. If you haven’t yet registered for the conference, you’re running out of time, so get to it.
See you there!
