Spanish Rails Conference 2007

Bit by bit I’m getting through my to-do list after the terrible flu that I caught in Madrid and now I have to write a bit about my impressions of the Conferencia Rails (Spanish Rails conference) this year :)

If I had to sum it up in a single word, it would be ‘intense’: many presentations, conversations in the hallways and even a few nights out. Both days we started at 10am and ended up finishing at 4am. These types of events contradict the myth that computer people are introverted and boring. There was an excellent atmosphere with good humor and a lot of laughs.

Regarding my presentations, the feedback was positive (though I owe some people beers for this!) and the experience was pretty good, so I’ve promised to prepare another one next year and to try and improve. The slides from the presentations are here:

If you couldn’t attend this year…don’t miss Rails Conferencia 2008! If it’s anything like this year’s, you won’t be sorry :)

See you at the next one!
