RailsConf draws to a close

It’s mid-afternoon here in Chicago and RailsConf has just officially ended. There is a huge line of people out front of the hotel waiting to catch the next shuttle to O’Hare. I’ll need a few more days to properly digest the conference and write a more detailed overview of what happened, but overall it was the most positive experience I’ve had at a conference outside of NFJS. Great speakers, late nights of hacking with friends, and geeky conversation. Well worth the time, money, and trouble to come.
