MountainWest Hackfest: Featuring Solo!

Those of you who were lucky enough to make it to last year’s MountainWest RubyConf probably remember the original Engine Yard Hackfest. We had a swanky hotel suite, food, drinks and snacks, and round’ the clock hacking. We met well over 100 developers and even hired a few!

When organizers Mike Moore and Pat Eyler announced this year’s MWRC, we jumped right back on the bandwagon. Engine Yard is proud to be sponsoring the event again, and pleased to bring back the MWRC Hackfest – with a twist!

This year, the suite is bigger, the food is better and we’ve got a new offering to play with. Hackfest attendees will receive free access to the Engine Yard Solo offering throughout the show, and an exclusive discount code for new signups.

There’s been a lot of interest and excitement around Solo, and this is your chance to work with it first hand. It’s a great, affordable option for hosting Ruby apps in the cloud, and the perfect choice for many new projects. Engine Yard Solo developers and experts will be on hand to answer questions and talk tech. What more could you ask for?

The Hackfest will be held both nights of MountainWest RubyConf at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center. It will begin immediately following the conference and stay open until the last Hacker leaves.

Here’s to hoping we see you there; the drinks are on us!
