RailsConf 2009 Registration Opens – Las Vegas in May
David Heinemeier Hansson has just announced that RailsConf 2009 is open for registration. In a break from tradition, RailsConf moves from Portland to Las Vegas this year - specifically the Las Vegas Hilton (it's on the monorail line so don't bother hiring a car). It takes place from Monday, May 4th through Thursday, May 7th.
2009 will be a big year for RailsConf, not just because of the big move, but because Rails 3.0 is going to become a big deal. David will undoubtedly be giving a keynote on Rails 3.0 and members of the Merb team will be there. Previously, David has said that Rails 3.0 should be visible in a pre-release form at the conference, so there'll probably be a focus on that.
Until March 16, registration costs $695 for the conference sessions only or $825 for conference sessions plus the tutorial day. Alternatively, you can get a free entry to the exhibition space only and attend Cabooseconf, the free hacker-focused part of RailsConf.
If you want to speak at RailsConf, now's the time to be thinking about that too. Proposals will be accepted up until February 17th, 2009.
If you fancy going to another Rails event a little earlier (and cheaper!) than RailsConf, keep reading...
