Ruby Hoedown 2012 -- The FREE Ruby conference in Nashville, TN -- CFP and registration now open!

Hello everyone!

Ruby Hoedown 2012 (presented by GitHub) will be happening on September 21 and 22, 2012 in Nashville, TN at the Scarritt-Bennett Center (the same beautiful venue as last year). Our registration is open now (available at and our CFP is open for just a little longer at our website (closes next Monday!).

This is our sixth year running, and we’re really excited to head back to Nashville again this year. If you’ve come in the last few years, you know the conference is chock full of excellent tech talks, fantastic music, and great parties and hangouts (honky tonks, anyone?). Best of all, entrance to the conference is FREE (as in, $0, zilch, nada, etc.). Of course, you’re welcome to snag a pay-what-you-want-ticket or a t-shirt, but if you just want to come hang out and watch great talks, then it’s totally free.

If you have any questions, pop over to the very simple website at (it might be there in the limited info); otherwise, feel free to ping me off-list. I’ll be happy to answer anything (including sponsorship inquiries!).
