More about the 2008 MountainWest RubyConf

Well, I’ve heard from a bunch of the MountainWest Regional Sponsors, and I’m getting really excited as we draw a bit closer. Addison-Wesley is donating some books from their Professional Ruby Series for to give away. Apress and O’Reilly are also donating books that will be pass out as part of the MWRC’s famous ‘binary lottery’ (well, maybe it’s not famous—it sure is fun though).

One of the sponsors has let me know that they’re planning something really special for attendees. I can’t say what it is yet, but they’ll be announcing it soon, so make sure you keep on eye all the sponsors' websites. (You can find the complete list of sponsors on the MountainWest RubyConf website.) Of course, I’ll post the news here as soon as they announce it too, so if you don’t mind getting your news second hand …

If you want to get in on the action, you can go to the MWRC registration page. It’s $100 for 2 days, 10 regular sessions, 2 lightning round sessions, keynotes by Evan Phoenix and Ezra Zygmuntowizc of Engine Yard and Jim Weirich of EdgeCase, a conference shirt, food, and chances to win great conference schwag, not too mention the awesome surprise to be announced soon—how can you go wrong?

Just seven more weeks! I hope to see you there.
