Back in 2008 when Hongli, Tinco and I set out to go to RailsConf to give our very first talk abroad, we met Jim in the lobby of the conference space. We had just attended a talk of his where he had gone through a myriad of valuable do's and don'ts one should be aware of when giving a talk.

30 Minutes or Less

I'm pretty sure no talk needs more than 30 minutes. Keynotes are perhaps the one exception - but hey, if you've gone with a single track, there's no keynotes - and I like the idea of all speakers being equal. And to keep the sessions focused, perhaps have a no-questions rule. Encourage attendees …

Can you believe it's already been a whole week since RailsConf 2013 ended?!

Another RailsConf has come and gone and everyone has gone back to their hometowns and offices. New Relic was lucky enough to have RailsConf in Portland, Oregon this year, which is our intergalactic engineering headquarters. We worked hard to make everyone who came to the conference feel welcome and get those extra opportunities to learn and interact with the Rails community.

I'm sitting in the Denver Airport - in a couple of minutes, I'll board the plane to RailsConf in Portland, Oregon. I'm already getting amped for Voodoo Donuts, Stumpdown Coffee, well-trimmed beards, and of-course, lots of Rails-related chats.

I'm bringing a fresh load of Scout T-Shirts. These aren't your normal heavy-weight, poor-fitting shirts. They are tastefully designed, American Apparel - Tri-Blend (otherwise known as the most comfortable shirt you'll …
