When RubyKaigi tickets sold out in 60 minutes
Posted at 8:23 | 08 Jun. 2022
It was June 2006. After a lot of work, the first ever RubyKaigi came onto the scene. Here we have a journal entry from none other than Why the Lucky Stiff, giving us all the juicy in-person details.
Okay, so it wasn't called Ruby 1.9.3 *yet* - but this week in 2011 Xavier Shay was showing off some impressive ruby improvements that saw some Rails apps enjoying a _30%_ speed boost. Wow!
There wasn't a formal Rails Edge docs site yet, but the folks at *caboo.se* put a little something together so folks could have a peek. This link will let you explore edge docs from this week fifteen years ago. Look around now and see if you notice anything surprising!
This week six years ago Planet Argon released their famous hosting survey. I won't spoil the surprises, you'll have to click through and see for yourself!
