RailsConf Day 3

There were a couple good sessions at RailsConf today. In particular Ezra's talk on performance, and the demo show was great. After the sessions, headed into town for a good dinner. We hit the Portland Steak and Chophouse for a quite leisurely and good dinner. Fried oysters and drinks, great steaks, and a nice bottle of Stag's Leap. Then it was on to Pivotal Labs party at the Rock Bottom Brewery which was fun. Played many rounds of pool where Aaron from Revolution Health showed us how it was done. Thanks to Ian and the folks from Pivotal for the party.

p.s. Jeff - I'll get you the yo-yos one way or another...

Pivotal Labs are the people who helped Bring Light become a reality. A great bunch of guys.

Hey guys,

Definitely good pool and conversation. Thanks to Pivotal... that tab must have been rough.

Cheers,
Aaron

Ya, the bill should be brutal, but they'll make that back in pair prog charges quick enough ;-)

As I mentioned to Aaron, great job on the Revolution Health blog. It's nice to see good details of what other larger Rails dev teams are doing, and more advanced apps or at least environments. I'm hoping that once our stuff is more public, that I can blog more about our Rails experiences/work as well...
