Rails 3 Release Explored at RailsConf: RailsConf First Major Gathering to Follow Release

Sebastopol, CA, February 18, 2010—This year's RailsConf, offers the Rails community the opportunity to delve into the possibilities created by the Rails 3 release. O'Reilly Media and Ruby Central, Inc. have opened registration for RailsConf on June 7-10, 2010, at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD. To ensure that the program includes the most timely content possible, the call for participation remains open until March 17, 2010.

"With the imminent release of Rails 3, RailsConf is destined to be a hotbed of learning, collaboration, and exploration. The Rails framework gets a major internal overhaul with the new release, which will make for a cleaner, more productive experience for programmers. Its new flexibility will certainly provide new ways of getting things done," says RailsConf chair Chad Fowler. "RailsConf is the first major gathering of Rails developers in the wake of this major event."

  • Michael Feathers of Object Mentor, Inc.
