Scotland on Rails 2009

Getting ready for Scotland on Rails in Edinburgh from Thursday to Saturday. I’m giving a presentation on Friday about teaching Rails. Ran it by the person currently teaching the MSc conversion students Ruby, and he thought it fine, and mentioned that he was real pleased with how it’s been going. The students are learning lots, not getting stuck too much, and that a number have installed everything neatly to their laptops without too much hand-holding by him and his colleague. Phew.

If you’re not there and want to follow the action on Twitter than you can see the stream of tweets at hashtags, or using search at twitter.

I’m quite looking forward to it as there should be some good conversations about mobile web using Rails, and also about the industrial project ideas I floated last week. Stay tuned for more on that by the way. I’m seeing more people about that next week.
