UPDATE: ironruby sourcecode released!
this week i'm heading to one of my favorite cities, portland. it is the week the open source geeks descend upon the oregon convention center for a week of open source-ness for OSCON.
so why am i going? i went last year and had a blast...and learned a lot. this year i'm going to lurk a little bit more, try to get some candid thoughts of attendees and hopefully learn some more!
microsoft will have a good showing this year, and i'm most excited about john lam's session on ironruby. if you are headed to oscon, please be sure to check it out on thursday @ 5:20pm (btw, why do FOSS conferences go so late into the night!? -- or i'm just getting old and lazy). john will talk about dynamic languages on .net -- ironruby, the BSD-style project for implementing ruby on .net, and probably show some silverlight madness implementing these dynamic languages.
see you there! if you are going, you can follow me on twitter, or ring me up on my cell, email, whatever...let's hook up and chat! i've put my list on myconfplan.com of where i think i'll be (dang, there is another session during john's that i really want to go to!).
Please enjoy some of these other recent posts...
