Magrails was a conference we organised back in 2011 with some help from a lot of friends. It stood for Manchester Agile Rails, as in agile software development and the Ruby on Rails framework. It now means more agile rails. As this fits with the aspirations of the Lean Startup we are sharing it here first.
In martial arts a dojo where people go to train with their sensei. In software, it’s an organised day where people get together with a facilitator and
- No murdering your brain with powerpoint bullets
- Learn some new things in a friendly open environment.
The plan is to run 4 workshops (as in two at a time with a choice) with the emphasis on having fun, doing it differently, ninja learning.
Is this for you? If your interested in Lean, Bootstrapping, Coding, Agile, Business Development, Ruby, Rails – we’d have to say … yes.
We’re planning the first event on the 15th of June and will be announcing more details as we get the facilitators to agree. The second event will be on the 28th of September. It will be a mixed day with plenty for everybody, even if they aren’t coders, who want to have their brains stretched.
Update: We couldn’t find the time to do this this year, so please come back later.
