Exciting Changes for 2009:
In addition to moving RailsConf to the Las Vegas Hiltonâ€”with restaurants, shows, casinos, shopping and moreâ€”we're making a couple more changes designed to enrich your conference experience.
RailsConf 2009 will take place entirely during the work week. We recognize that most of you are professionals as well as fans, so this should make it easier for more of you to attend without giving up your weekend.
We're keeping the Call for Participation open longerâ€”three months longerâ€”to accommodate late-breaking news on up-to-the-minute Rails topics. Having a longer call for presentations for RailsConf 2009 means you'll gain an edge on the latest updates and versions, get your hands around brand new skills, and meet up with the people doing cutting edge work with Rails and related technologies.
Rails 3 Tentatively Scheduled to Be Released during RailsConf:
In December, it was announced that Merb would be merging into Rails 3.0, putting an end to the rivalry between the two communities. As David Heinemeier Hansson put it on the Ruby on Rails blog, "We all realized that working together for a common good would be much more productive than duplicating things on each side of the fence. Merb and Rails already share so much in terms of design and sensibility that joining forces seemed like the obvious way to go."
While tentatively scheduled to release during RailsConf in May, DHH recently noted that the flow of Merb ideas into Rails 3 is already under way.
