RailsConf is not your “normal” tech conference. You will have people ranting, doing real rocket-science and lot’s of people having real and genuine fun. We are very lucky to have people such as Geoffrey Grosenbach, Jason Seifer, Peter Cooper, Ninh Bui and so much more to remind us that there is an upper layer to technology: geeks love to have fun.
And don’t miss the awesome Rubystein, Phusion’s reimplementation of Wolsfenstein 3D in Ruby. They wanted to prove that Ruby is fast enough even to...

Bryan Liles’ Test All The Fucking Time video really struck a cord and people have been repeating his motto ever since. He was so kind to send a message to the Brazilian programmers as well, check it out:
O vídeo do Bryan Liles, Test All The Fucking Time realmente tocou num ponto importante e as pessoas vem repetindo seu lema desde então. Ele foi muito legal em enviar uma mensagem aos programadores Brasileiros, dêem uma olhada ;-)

I’ve had a great time interviewing several interesting Rubysts and Railers on their new projects. I think you will like to hear what they have to say. My first guest was Joshua Timberman. He is a fervorous evangelist for the Chef project. Chef could be seen as a more modern Puppet, which by itself, already is a modern systems configuration manager. Chef is composed of several pieces, cookbooks and details that Joshua explains in his interview.

Maybe not everybody knows it but the well known Ruby Inside website now has a new branch in Brazil. It was recently released and we have a bunch of highly motivated Railers that are doing a great work posting everything that is news in the Ruby and Rails world both in Brazil and in other countries. Check it out Peter Cooper’s take on this:
Talvez nem todos saibam, but o bem conhecido site Ruby Inside agora tem uma nova filial no Brasil. Eles iniciaram recentemente e tem uma equipe de Railers...

David Hansson delivered a nice keynote, showing how Rails evolved throughout the years, the criticisms, the discussions. He introduced the future Rails 3 feature set and, finally, discussed about the secret for productivity. There was nothing particularly new if you are already an Agilist, but it is always good to reinforce the basic concepts:

Brasileiros: tradução mais abaixo Update 08/05: Bob Martins’ full keynote is now available at RailsConf’s Blip.TV page. Definitely go check it out! It seems that O’Reilly promised to deliver – at the very least – the main keynote recordings, so unfortunately we will have Tim Ferris, but much fortunately we will have Uncle Bob. Definitely the best talk I’ve seen in eons. This particular snippet comes from the Q/A session, where Bob answer the question: “can you be too professional?” Where many...

Brasileiros: tradução mais abaixo Today we were very fortunate to have the ending keynote by Robert Martin himself (a.k.a. Uncle Bob), from Object mentor. I recorded most of the talk and I will publish them soon (and I still have lots of material that I was unable to compile just yet), but at the end of the talk I asked Bob to quickly give an advice to my fellow Brazilian programmers that were still unable to wrap their heads around TDD.
Hoje tivemos a sorte de ter o keynote de encerramento ...
