Just an FYI…

Rails Rumble 2008 has started. I am signed up to be a judge, It would be pretty interesting to see what comes out of this 48 hour hack fest.

The Rails Rumble is a 48 hour web application development competition. As a contestant, you get one weekend to design, develop, and deploy the best web property that you can, using the awesome power of Ruby on Rails

Read more about it from their latest blog post: It’s On!

I’ll try to get a list going of the open source projects that come out of this event, and post the git hub links.

Here is the first app from what someone had posted in IRC: – maybe its something to follow?
