New England Ruby conferences 2013
I had the chance to attend two conferences this Fall in New England.
Burlington Ruby Conference
Burlington Ruby conference was in Burlington, VT, about 3 hours from Boston, MA. My co-worker stayed outside of downtown at an Airbnb place which worked out nicely. Burlington has some great restaurants and is a nice place to visit in the summer months. The conference talks are online at confreaks. My favorite talk was "Negotiation for Hackers" by Danielle Sucher.
Wicked Good Ruby Conf
Wicked Good Ruby Conf was held in Boston's Seaport area. I spent most of my time with some new friends I made through the Boston Ruby users group. My favorite talk from the conference was the opening keynote from Sandi Metz.
Some other conference options in the area are Goruco in NY and Nickel City Ruby in Buffalo, NY.
