Work isn’t paying for OSCON this year, but one advantage of living in Seattle is that it’s close enough to Portland to be able to drive down for the day. So, I’m going to head down Wednesday afternoon for the Portland Ruby group’s FOSCON talks, and then hang around for a few hours Thursday morning before driving back for work.

It looks like several of the Ruby people with OSCON talks will be giving their talks for FOSCON as well, so it should be interesting. I suspect it’ll turn into a big Ruby BoF; that’s reason enough to drive down.
