RailsConf registration is officially open, and there are all kinds of reasons to believe there’s going to be a rush. Don’t wait to register!

Plus, Mike and Dave—the Rails Studio guyshave announced the coolest pre-conference training event ever: the Rails Guidebook. I’m sure a lot of people coming to RailsConf will be new to Rails, and the guidebook will be a great way to get started: a one-day overview of Ruby and Rails from the leading Rails instructors, complete with an installfest so you’ll be prepared to try out the things you learn at the conference. All for a small charitable donation.

I can’t help gushing; those guys rock. And the Rails Guidebook will rock, too. Almost makes me wish I was a newbie! :-)

See you at RailsConf!
