RailsConf 2008 is Now Over

Check out the list of upcoming O’Reilly events around the world.

Over 1800 Ruby programmers from around the world gathered in Portland for the 2008 edition of RailsConf. Check out all the highlights:

Happening May 29-June 1, 2008 in Portland, Oregon, RailsConf is *the* official event for the growing Rails community. If you're passionate about Rails and what it helps you achieve—or are curious about how Rails can help you create web applications better and faster—RailsConf is the place to be. Learn more about RailsConf.

Over three years after its initial release, Rails continues to shake the foundations of the web development world. With an ever-growing host of stable applications in production, Rails 2.0 changes the focus from rapid change and innovation to stabilization and maturity.

More Advanced-level Sessions

With so many excellent books and online resources available, we think the RailsConf audience would benefit from a larger helping of hardcore technical topics, particularly around design or coding techniques, testing tools, and deployment techniques. So this year the RailsConf program will feature more advanced-level topics and sessions.
