Ruby on Ales is a two-day, single track conference inspired by Ruby, beer, & snow. Reserve a seat and plan to ski, board, or tube when you attend the first annual Ruby on Ales conference in Bend, Oregon.

It just came to my attention as we are preparing for ROA 2012, that only 10 of the 17 videos from last year were posted, the other seven will be coming online shortly. - CPR (1/27/2012)
