For those who are new to the concept, RailsCamp is a weekend retreat where developers get together, turn off the Internet, and meet newpeople, hack on projects, present ideas, and play a lot of Werewolf). It’s very informal, relaxed and a lot of fun.

There’s a general focus on Ruby-based projects and presentations, but everyone is welcome. If you’ve ever wanted to see why people care so much about Ruby, this would be a great way to find out.

The next RailsCamp is taking place on June 10, just outside of Byron Bay in NSW. An opportunity to escape to the country for a weekend with a cadre of like-minded hackers is one that should not be passed up!

To celebrate the launch of RubySource, we are giving away 5 VIP tickets to RailsCamp 9. To be in the running, all you need to do is fill in a quick survey about your thoughts on Ruby:

RubySource Survey

Your answers will help shape the direction and focus of RubySource, as well as giving us an insight into our readers and potential authors!

Entries close on May 31. Winners will be picked randomly, and notified via email. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience RailsCamp!
