Dear Rubyists,

On behalf of RubyConf 2004 and Ruby Central, Inc., we are thrilled to
announce a special gift from The Pragmatic Programmers to the Ruby
community:

As a thank-you to the community, the Pragmatic Programmers will give
each of the first 50 (fifty) people to register for RubyConf 2004 a
FREE COPY of the second edition of "Programming Ruby" ("Pickaxe2"). 

These recipients will be the first people in the world to see the
new edition; it will literally be hot off the presses and shipped
directly from the printers to the conference. 

To qualify, you must register no later than September 1, and your
conference fees must be fully paid in advance of the conference. 

You can register for the conference at:

  http://www.rubycentral.org/conference/register.html

Happy Pickaxing, and see you in Virginia!
