RailsCamp.au #5 – book now

Imagine yourself and a posse of like-minded Ruby hackers on a country retreat with zero internet for a weekend of fun. You’ll laugh, hack, learn, cry (well, you probably won’t cry… but you know… it felt poetic) and most likely play a crap-load of guitar hero. [manifesto]

In chronological order, the first RailsCamps in Australia were in the states: New South Wales, Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia.

This time, between May 15th and 18th, it’s in Queensland. God’s Country. The Sunshine State. Home of Steve Irwin (deceased), Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen (deceased), Greg Norman (expat), Keith Urban (expat), and Kristy Hinze (marrying ex-Silicon Graphics/ex-Netscape billionaire Jim Clark; expat). So its a pretty famous and popular place to come from.

Foreigners and RailsCamp.au

There is no official foreigners policy. More generally, there aren’t too many policies on anything for RailsCamps. Its noteworthy that we’re a country founded 200 years ago on Britain’s primary export in the 1800s: shoplifters. So we’ll accept just about anyone. If you can get through Customs and Quarantine into our country, then we’ll let you come to RailsCamp.

Since RailsCamp.au starts just after RailsConf finishes, it would seem like an idea back-to-back “working” holiday. If you arrive early into Brisbane we’ll find you some office space to hang out in, or we’ll point you in the direction of some places to go touristing.

RailsCamp tickets sell out faster than RailsConf tickets, so decide fast.

    Is this open to Cocoa Developers?

    @Dunk – absolutely. I think I spent all of one RailsCamp playing with the iPhone SDK with Gareth.
