Headed to Atlanta

Oh, Atlanta

I hear you calling

I’m coming back to you one fine day

No need to worry

There ain’t no hurry cause I’m…

On my way back to Geaow-uh-ga

On my way back to Geaow-uh-ga

–Alison Krauss and Union Station: “Oh, Georgia”

I’m headed off to beautiful, old, stately Atlanta this coming Sunday, and, with the way that things have been busy of late, I’m not sure that I’m going to have time to write about it any other time but now.

I’m headed off to da dirty to attend Big Nerd Ranch’s Ruby on Rails 1-week intensive training class.

Readers of this site will remember that about a year ago I attended their Cocoa Boot Camp in gorgeous Frascati, Italy. This is something that I actually said that I would write a blog entry on, but instead just posted a bunch of pictures to Flickr. Sorry, maybe I’ll do better this time.

I’m really looking forward to it. Rails, and by extensions technologies of its type, is something that I’ve really been wanting to learn more about for some time, but I just couldn’t seem to find the time to put the pieces together on my own. Between work and (now) school, I’m hard-pressed to find the time to hole up in a library or a coffee shop and start putting together the bits of rinky-dink programs which eventually turn into knowledge.

Perhaps while I’m there I’ll also undertake to start my rap career.
