MountainWest RubyConf 2008 Registration Open

MountainWest Ruby, LLC has just opened registration for this year’s MountainWest RubyConf, which will be March 28th and 29th in Salt Lake City, Utah. According to the website:

MountainWest RubyConf is a two day conference costing just $100 which includes lunch both days, t-shirts, and a terrific opportunity to rub elbows with some of the smartest Rubyists around. We have a great list of presenters with compelling presentations.

The list of presenters does look great:
  • Giles Bowkett – Code Generation: The Safety Scissors Of Metaprogramming
  • Devlin Daley – Enough Statistics so that Zed won’t yell at you
  • Patrick Farley – Ruby Internals
  • Philippe Hanrigou – What To Do when Mongrel Stops Responding to Your Requests and Ruby Doesn’t Want to Tell You About It
  • Yehuda Katz – Faster, Better, ORM with DataMapper
  • Jan Lehnardt – Next Generation Data Storage with CouchDB
  • Jeremy McAnally – Deep Ruby
  • Joe O’Brien – Domain Specific Languages: Molding Ruby
  • Tammer Saleh – BDD with Shoulda
  • Jonathan Younger – Using Amazon’s Web Services from Ruby

While the keynotes aren’t announced yet, I think they’re going to be awesome too. I’m looking forward to the announcements. So, what are you waiting for? Go register—it’s only $100 for what looks like an awesome conference.

Trying like crazy to get to the registration page. I've tried it at work and home. acteva.com loads just fine but acteva.com/mtnwestruby just hangs.

The link has been updated to acteva.com/go/mtnwestruby at the mtnwestrbyconf.org site, so I've updated it here too.

On the other hand, neither link is working for me this morning, and trying to log into acteva is broken too, so I think they're having issues this morning.
