At RailsConf 2008, in Portland, we had our first JRuby hackfest. Over 100 people showed up and we had a great time. It was cool to see applications leveraging Java technologies. We met new users who wanted to try debug some issues running their applications on JRuby. We also had some folks who wanted to help contribute patches to JRuby. Mix in some some snacks, beer, and great people….OMGZ…the event totally rocked.

It is time for history to repeat.

###Rubinius Office Hours

Brian Ford will be on-deck at RailsConf holding Rubinius help desk hours. If you have Rubinius questions, or want to share feedback about your experience with Rubinius, holler at @brixen in Baltimore or swing by the Engine Yard RailsConf booth to find out more Rubinius help desk details.

###EventMachine RubyConf

Last but not least, there’s also some planning in the works for EventMachine RubyConf, a half day event that will take place during RailsConf. Time, date and location are being worked out and will be announced shortly. Watch @emrubyconf for details.

See you at RailsConf, or another event soon!
