I had a good time at RubyConf, but was too busy obsessing over my presentation. I think it turned out well, though, as many people complimented me on my talk. I did manage to play my “you owe me a beer” card a couple times though, which was good.
This RubyConf had the feel of the pre-Rails RubyConfs, which was very welcome. The dual track format was alright, except that one talk would be far more popular than the other leaving one room standing-room-only.
I think my favorite talk of the conference was Ben Bleything’s Controlling Electronics with Ruby, because he had all sorts of fun toys to pass around and play with.
Also, Rich Kilmer, Akira Tanaka and Koichi Sasada figured out the last issues to importing RubyGems into 1.9, so we’ll be cleaning that up over the next week or two. I’ll have a separate post on the RubyGems differences between 1.8 and 1.9 shortly.comment
