Topic: Aloha Ruby Conf 2012

Aloha Ruby Conference ( is approaching soon, October 8-9, 2012, at the Sheraton Waikiki Beach Hotel. We have a volcanic line up of speakers and topics. Aaron Patterson's is kicking off the conference by giving us an update on Rails 4 and the future of the Web. The day 2 keynote speaker will be Chad Fowler. Charles Nutter tells us what we're missing out on if we don't JRuby. Mocks are sometimes quite painful and feel like a necessary evil in our tests - Corey Haines will enlighten us as to how test doubles can be useful guides, pointing out design issues in our application. Mark Bates is going to show what Coffeescript functions and Ruby 1.9 lambdas have in common. Think you know everything about Ruby? James Edward Gray thinks differently. There are many lessons on scalability to be gleaned from Starcraft that Richard Schneeman will share. Evan Machnic wants you to do your Rails Development on Windows, seriously!  Rubymotion allows us to write iOS apps with Ruby, presented by Ray Hightower.

Oh, this is all about to go down in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii – a few hundred yards from Queens surf break, the last break in Duke Kahanamoku’s epic 1-mile ride … in HAWAII !!!

Thanks and Mahalo to our sponsors: Zendesk, Engine Yard, Yammer, Agile Animal, GitHub, HTDC/Hawaii Broadband, Ikayzo, New Relic, Ruby Central and Sticker Mule.
