this weekend, there’s going to be a hackfest for Rails 3.1!
If you’ve wanted to contribute to Rails in the past but you were too intimidated, now you have a chance to get involved, meet your heros and make a few friends along the way! Members of the Rails core team as well as core contributors will be hanging out on IRC. Don’t hesitate to ask whatever questions you may have.
Core Team Members:
- Aaron Patterson (tenderlove)
- Xavier Noria (fxn)
- Santiago Pastorino (spastorino)
- Damien Mathieu (dmathieu)
- Prem Sichanugrist (sikachu)
- Josh Kalderimis (joshk)
The weekend of July 23rd and 24th, 2011
- Server: irc.freenode.net
- Channel: #rails-contrib
In real life?
Outside of this, there will be some get togethers of people (in real life) hacking on Rails, if you’d prefer that. There are a number of places that have confirmed meeting places for this gathering and they are listed on the official Rails blog.
Get all the details on this hackfest at the official Rails blog. Happy hacking!
