I Guess I’m Not Going To Scotland On Rails After All


Let this serve as a reminder to myself to do things the right way round. In retrospect booking the hotel (non-refundable) in Edinburgh for the duration of the Scotland On Rails conference in March I was attending with John Topley before actually buying the ticket for the conference itself doesn’t seem to have been a good call. In the previous year it took months to sell out but it turns out that it sold out on the day I was going to buy my ticket, which was yesterday. So much for being sensible and waiting until I got paid to buy the ticket! I guess the wonders of the Ruby on Rails platform John’s been telling me about will have to wait for another time.

I wonder what I can do for 3 days alone (during the days) in Edinburgh at the end of March. Some photography maybe? I guess every problem is an opportunity in disguise!

Update: I managed to score a ticket from the organisers after all, thanks guys! 🙂

  1. Doh! Drop an email ( and we’ll add you to the waiting list. You never know, there might be some people who drop out, or we might be able to arrange more space.

    Worst case, you’ll be able to find us all in a nearby pub at least some of the time, and the Charity Tutorial day still has space.
