Rubinius Summit 062011 in Pictures

Once a month Evan Phoenix, Brian Ford and I (Shane Beccker) get together for a few days in-person face-time. Usually we meet up in San Francisco at the Engine Yard HQ and spend time with our dear and lovely boss, Dr Nic. We like to call these little get togethers Rubinius Summits. For the June 2011 Rubinius Summit, Brian came down to LA where both Evan and I live. We spent the week working together at The Farmhouse on moving the ball forward toward the 2.0 release. Here’s a few pictures of some of the things that went down.

One More Thing

We came up with an idea this week for how to better communicate outwardly and be more transparent. We built it up real quick and are launching it …really soon. Here’s a little teaser.
