Rails Day

Published June 18, 2006

Reading time: 1 minutes.

We made it through the contest! Mike, Adam, and I submitted our final change to our program after running into some nasty last minute problems. There’s always so much to fix.

I’m truly amazed at what this programming framework can do. We accomplished more in 24 hours than many people hope to accomplish in a month’s time. The three of us hammered out a fairly nice event and expense tracker. Adam and Mike would like to see it go somewhere. I think it could be a good project for them to continue.

It sounds like everyone who took part in the contest learned a lot. There are photos on Flickr of various contestants. The chat rooms were buzzing with everyone trying to get ready. It was great to be a part of such a big thing. I absolutely love the community and I am proud to be a part of it.

I’m also proud of Mike and Adam for stepping up and taking this challenge. I think they learned a lot from it and I hope they continue to tackle challenges like this.

Special thanks to Carissa for being so wonderful and putting up with us for 24 hours straight. She’s one of a kind!
Enough from me though… I need to get some sleep!
