Work hunt update, Rails Day, Meetups, and Stuff

— June 7, 2006 at 15:23 PDT


There's some really cool stuff going on in Rails development these days. If you ever want to find out about it, start looking for a Rails job and talk to people about what they are building. I've been a bit overwhelmed by all the emails I got expressing interest in hiring me. And I don't just mean that in the abstract. Reading all those emails and following up has gotten a bit out of hand, so if you emailed me and I haven't gotten back to you yet, I apologize. I think I should get all the emails responded to by today, except maybe the ones that just arrived and I haven't read yet. I just wish I had time to work on more of these projects.

Last Friday I posted an article on Riding Rails about Rails Trac keywords.

Rails Day 2006 is coming up on June 17. Andre Lewis, Chris Wanstrath and I have teamed up and are working on a project so ultra-cool we're going to wear shades for the entire 24 hours we're coding it.

Two meetups in the next week! SV RoR Meetup tomorrow, and SF Ruby Meetup on Monday. And that's not even counting dinner with topfunky tonight, which makes three! OMG more exclamation points!!!

And since I'm being sort of random and linky this post, I'll add a plug for Al Gore's new movie An Inconvenient Truth. I saw it over the weekend and was quite impressed with his presentation of the issue and his ability to make the science accessible. My worry level over global warming has been creeping up over the last few years, and I'm grateful for Al Gore's work in bringing the issue into focus. I now think this is the most important issue for us to address as a civilization, or it might mean the end of our civilization. And if the movie scares you, take a moment and read up on global dimming. Things are likely worse than Gore's movie make them out to be.

Counting down to RailsConf: only 15 days to Chicago.

    I just can't figure out how Rails gained that importance in such period. Strange thing...
