FOSCON Live Coding competition

The Portland Ruby Brigade is cooking up a great FOSCON this year, hosted at Cubespace. It’s all happening on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 from 6pm-9pm.

I’m going to miss some of FOSCON this year, but I’m hoping to catch some of the Live Coding Competition. In Drupal’s corner, Jakob Perry (of Ubercart fame) is leading the charge with Joshua Brauer. Ruby on Rails will be represented, as will a couple other web frameworks or content management system.

Rumor has it, Jakob and Joshua are going to rock this competition. If you’re a Drupal enthusiast, see if you can make it over to Cubespace to cheer them on Wednesday.
