How to Get the Most Out of Rails Conference?

If you have never attended the Rails conference, some of the questions you may have in your mind are:
  • Should I attend Rails conference?
  • Why attend Rails conference?
  • Too many tracks? Can't decide which one to attend? 
  • Which sessions should you attend? 
Here is some practical tips:

Do not attend the presentations

You can always watch the recorded presentations after the conference is over for free. This also avoids wasting time on horrible presentations. You can pick the best sessions to watch them later.

Focus on making connections with other developers

Attend the birds-of-a feather sessions in the evenings. For instance, if you are interested in building a SaaS app using Rails, attend or organize one if there is enough interest.

Attend the all day workshop on how to contribute to Rails

The skills you will gain is useful at work even if you have no intention to contribute to Rails. This is a hands-on workshop, learn as much as you can by watching and working with other developers.
