[AgileScotland] Two things - Linda Rising Course confirmed & ScotlandOnRails

Hi everyone,
I've been very busy lately (you'll see why in a few minutes) so I apologise for not sending this note out earlier.
Two things:
1) The training day with Linda Rising on the 21st of April is going ahead.  It will cost £200, payable to Linda on the day, and will be in central Edinburgh.  I'll post a fuller description out early next week.  Thanks to everyone who has already signed up - it makes my life an so much easier when booking venues etc!
2) The ScotlandOnRails conference guys have had more people sign up than they ever dreamed of, but luckily they're an ambitious lot and have a decent sized venue ... so, they can handle a few more bookings. If you've still not bookend then scroll down ...

Subject: [AgileScotland] Scotland on Rails Conference and Charity Tutorial

In advance of the Scotland on Rails Conference, we are holding a
Charity Tutorial on the day before the conference - Thursday 3
April.  This is a chance to both give people new to Ruby and/or Rails
a kick-start in the language and framework prior to the conference,
and raise some money for a very worthwhile cause - the Childrens
Hospice Association Scotland ( ).

It's also a chance to be taught by, and get tips and tricks from,
some of top international Ruby and Rails developers.  For instance,
if you've done any Rails (or Ruby) you're almost certain to have used
the Ruby build tool, Rake, and there's a good chance you've used
Flexmock too -  Jim Weirich, the author of both those tools, is one
of the tutors.

While aimed at conference attendees, the tutorial is open to all.
All you need to do is donate at least £75 to CHAS at this URL

The tutorial is being held in Edinburgh University's Pollock Halls
complex on 3 April.  Details are here:

BTW, there's still a few places left at the conference proper.  If
you want to hear about the future of Ruby and Rails from some of the
thought-leaders in the community - including Rails on the Java
Virtual Machine from the core of Sun's JRuby team -  now's probably
the time to get your registration in at
