    Question should i spend the money for this ruby conference (was "I need help")

    Hi,
    I am a php programmer that recently got turned onto Ruby by my brother-in-law. I was wanting to learn more about it, and found out that there is a conference coming up in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Before I spend $500 for a ticket I was wanting to get the opinion of someone who maybe heard of any of these speakers: Bruce Tate, Stuart Halloway, Justin Gehtland, and Neal Ford. Do you think it would be worth the money to listen to these guys? The website for the conference www.erubycon.com doesnít really give a lot of detail on what they are going to be teaching so I just donít know if I should spend the money. The conference runs from February 9-11 so a quick response would be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks for your time,
    Todd Sampson

    Neal Ford - http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/2632

    They have all written books and to be speaking at erubycon.com pretty much makes it worth it I think. Plus you have Peepcode Screencasts as a sponsor which is run by well know rails guru Geoffrey Grosenbach.

    Wow, I didn't realize these guys were all authors. Thanks for the info.
    That makes my decision to attend much easier.

    Thanks,
