This April 21, in Google’s Manhattan offices, for $100, you can check out the Gotham Ruby Conference.

These regional Ruby conferences are a great idea, I think. If your job won’t pay for you to attend a huge (more expensive) Ruby conference, plus travel expenses, you can take advantage of the smaller, cheaper, local conferences springing up all around. Even if you’re a relative Ruby newbie, the price makes it a low-risk investment. For $100, and a full day of Ruby, it’s a bargain. Just as a cost comparison, I’m about to start another day of .Net training, and that costs about $500 a day.

See you there…
