Ah, Portland. The open-source motherland. Pacific springtime beauty.
RailsConf '07 nirvana.rb # true and home of CD Baby, a little record
store that digs Ruby and Rails.

We're gearing up for a RailsConf hackfest[1] at the Jupiter hotel just down
the street and figured, heck, let's start now! The top twenty Rails
contributors between the new year and conference registration opening day
will have a free conf pass and a room at the Jupiter specially reserved, CD
Baby's treat.

No kidding. Registration opens in a matter of weeks. Sprint!

Rails contribution is measured by real Trac activity weighted in favor of
well-tested, committed patches but also accounts for new tickets and even
comments. We're joining forces with Working With Rails to track Rails
contributions[2] from the new year onward. To be included, mark yourself as
a core contributor and give your Trac username in your account profile.

Have a Rails itch you've longed to scratch? Now's the time! Happy hacking,
and see you at RailsConf.

Best,
jeremy
