The Joyent team will be in Portland Wednesday, May 16th through Sunday, May 20th for RailsConf and we have planned a few social activities to break up all this silly tech stuff:
Wednesday, May 16th at 7pm
Geek Dinner at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub at
915 SE Hawthorne Blvd. In true geek dinner fashion it is ‘buy your own’, but we hope that won’t stop you from throwing back a pint or two with us.
APPy Hour in the Presidential Suite at the Doubletree Hotel from 3:30pm – 5:30pm daily (Thursday, May 17th – Saturday, May 19th)
Just another excuse to have a beer, shoot the breeze and give you a place to show off the APP you just built that you are super proud of. We will have a few giveaways here, including the opportunity to win a free year on a (L) Accelerator – sweeeet! We will also be podcasting the ps pipe grep from the Suite and might have a surprise visitor now and then so be sure to come on by and say howdy.
Of course, this is a developers conference, so if you would like to mix in a little techie stuff as well – a couple of our boys are hosting sessions you might find a bit interesting:
Thursday, May 17th from 8:30am – 12:00pm
Jason Hoffman is leading a session called Scaling a Rails Application from the Bottom Up. This event has SOLD OUT, so I am hoping you have already have your ticket for this session.
Thursday, May 17th from 8:30pm – 9:30pm
Scott Barron will hold a BOF for people interested in DTrace and Ruby/Rails to discuss the hows, the whys and will provide a few demos. More info. This event is free, though Scott wouldn’t mind you buying him a beer or two to show how much you love him.
Our good friends over at Sun have reserved a spot for Joyent in Sun booth on the pavilion floor – so if you can’t get to the Doubletree Suite, look for us there.
So I guess you don’t really have any excuse to not stop by and say hi – somewhere. :)
