Douglas Adams once wrote that the world would end on a Thursday (it did, actually). But not this Thursday. Today, the Rails Rumble voting system goes live. Check out the badass applications built by our 92 qualifying teams, and Register to vote for your favorites. The polls will be open for 2 weeks, so get in there and make your voice heard now. There may be 92 killer apps, but only one can win the Title Belt. Go get em tiger.
The Rails Rumble is a 2-day event taking place the weekend of September 8th.
Over a period of 48 hours, teams of Ruby on Rails developers will compete
design, develop, and deploy new and interesting web-based applications
The Rumble is equal parts idea incubator and community building exercise, as well as being a demonstration of exactly how much you can accomplish with Ruby on Rails and agile development processes in very little time.
Contestants will be judged throughout the following week by the community (that's you!) and prizes will be awarded for various category wins. In addition, winners will be showcased at the upcoming Ruby East conference.
Registration will open shortly. Register your team to compete, or sign up to help judge submissions!
