RubyConf in the southeast

The Ruby community in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina has been growing by leaps and bounds lately, in large part due to the fantastic job Nathaniel Talbott has been doing with the local Ruby Brigade. Another sign of the growing interest in Ruby and Rails in the area is the just-announced Ruby Hoedown, a RubyConf of sorts that’s being hosted by the Brigade in the Raleigh area on August 10th and 11th. Details are sketchy, but you can register on the site to receive more information as it becomes available. And to all you aspiring speakers, now is the time to start thinking about what you’d like to present at the conference!
