Spanish Rails Camp 2011

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.

Railscamp are traditionally very cheap (as cheap as we can get food & accomodation) and people who miss them really regret it :p
