Earlier this month I attended RailsConf Europe in Berlin. RailsConf is a conference about Ruby on Rails, a programming framework to produce websites. I'm a part-time Ruby on Rails programmer and had a very interesting conference. Others have already written about RailsConf, so I want to focus on how it was like from a scientist's perspective.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://front-matter.io/mfenner/notes-of-a-scientist-from-railsconf-europe
