So I've been meaning to write about a conference I'll be going to, RubyFringe in Toronto, July 18-20. I'm looking forward to it, partially because it's described as "Deep nerd tech with punk rock spirit" and the speakers sound pretty interesting. Most conferences are about as fun as a trip to the bank.

At ETech '08 I met Pete Forde and some other people involved with RubyFringe. We hung out a bit and had some crappy barbeque with people like Anil Dash and Dan Grigsby. It was a really good time and I'm looking forward to being around the types of geeks who would come to RubyFringe.

RubyFringe will be pretty informal. So I'm planning on wearing pajama pants the whole conference, and I'm even going to give my talks in pajama pants. Unless it's too hot, in which case I'll wear my cut-off pajama pants. I might have to buy some new ones, gotta look fresh yo.

I'll be talking about CouchDB, and maybe about what it's like to move your family somewhere cheap and live off savings to build the next great open source database. If you are going, send me feedback what you want to hear about and I'll make sure to cover it.
