Registration for the 2008 Rails Rumble opened last Friday. If you haven’t already registered and want to compete, you better hurry up. There are only 25 seats remaining (out of a maximum of 200!) at the time of this writing. I’m guessing those will be gone very, very soon.
We’ve been working hard to make this years competition even better than last year and I think everyone is going to have a lot of fun. In addition to all the great prizes that sponsors are putting on the table, and the insane amount of community goodwill surrounding the event, there are also a number of companies running workshare programs. If you’re a fan of the coworking concept you may want to check these out. I know I’m wishing there was one in my town.
On the other hand, if you’re geographically isolated from the rest of the Ruby world, don’t despair! It’s a virtual competition and you can compete from anywhere. Look at it as a great opportunity to assemble a distributed team of entrepreneurially-minded developers and designers and see how well you can work with each other. If you’re looking for people or ideas, make sure to check out the #railsrumble channel on the Freenode IRC network or post to the blog.
