We’ve got 1600 people attending this years RailsConf (as opposed to around 400 last year.) This sort of reminds me of when Eclipse got popular and the growth between the first and second EclipseCon.
Alright so Chad is up on stage welcoming everyone. He’s encouraging everyone to be good and give at http://pragmaticstudio.com/donate. The message: don’t be overprivileged programming geeks who don’t have to type all the Java syntax. lol
Now Chad is playing out some nice tunes on the ukelele while Rich is telling us about his intro to TextMate (he’s got license #8) by DHH.
