Music Jam/Birds of a Feather Sessions (BoFs) - Wednesday

Ron Evans (The Hybrid Group)
Location: Ballroom I - II
Average rating: ****.
(4.25, 8 ratings)

8:00pm – 10:00pm Music Jam, Ballroom I/II
Bring an instrument (or your voice) and let’s make music!

Many Rails developers are also musicians. Whether you play jazz, rock, blues, pop, or whatever the case may be, come along and meet and play with other musical developers. Don’t worry if you can’t bring your own instrument, stop by anyway. There will be a full set of drums, bass, and guitars thanks to The Hybrid Group.

8:00pm – 10pm BoFs, Ballroom III, Ballroom IV, Room 345, Tables 1 – 5
Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BoFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards). BoFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic. Learn more about BoFs

Check out the song list github wiki. Add songs you’d like to play or submit your requests. No Stairway. Maybe Freebird…

Looking forward to it—and this year I’m planning to gather the courage to actually plug in!

Don’t miss this event! It’s really amazing to see people get together with no practicing and play music that is better quality than you’d pay a $5 cover to see across the street.
