RailsConf Writeups: Day 3
For me, this was the slowest day of the conference by design. I was so exhausted, and my feet hurt so badly that I wondered if I would even make it to the keynote in the morning. I did manage to get there without too much problem, and the Aleve that I brought came in extremely handy.
My day included:
- Exploring Virtual Clusters for Rails Development and Deployment
- Memcaching Rails
- The Dark Art of Developing Plugins
- A short brain break
- Open Mic Demo Session which I was asked to leave because my presence established a fire hazard. Whatever.
During the Memcaching session, I missed my own solitary mention “on the floor” in the Joyent Slingshot presentation when I was mentioned as having worked on porting an application to it. I later got together with the person who was asking about it– Luke Melia is a commiter on Tracks.
Jon, a friend of his, and I walked out to McMenamin’s for dinner. Jon didn’t like the beer that I got (It was named Ruby!) but the meal was decent. After that, we walked back to the hotel and called it a day.
We ended up seeing a clip I had shown Jon at the start of the day on Inside Edition. Jon and I were both tickled because we are evil persons.
