Word on the street is that Lone Star Ruby Conf was one of the best regional conferences last year, so I'm pretty excited to be presenting at the 2008 edition. It's happening Sept 4-6th in Austin, TX and speakers include: Matz, Evan Phoenix, Jim Weirich, The Rails Envy Guys, and too many other luminaries to name.

I'll be giving a talk entitled "Using Metrics to Take a Hard Look at Your Code" which is a distilation of my thinking over the past year about how to use numbers not as a hammer with which to beat people, but as a tool to improve your code.

Registration just opened up today, but space is limited so go sign up soon.
