A lot of startups seem to be building their web apps in Ruby On Rails and have been for a while, so I thought it was worth mentioning that Toronto is home to the least-boring Rails conference so far. RubyFringe. This conference seems to have come together due to sheer frustration with the current Rails developers conferences.
I have never been to a rails conference, but it isn’t hard to tell from the outside that they are becoming increasingly commercial, boring and profitable all at the same time, and I would guess that serious rails developers aren’t very attracted to that.
Congrats on getting this going, I hope it is a sellout and that I get invited to a super special VIP party!
