Memoirs of a programmer (internet version)


Published on

A description of my trip to Japan for Sapporo RubyKaigi 2012. Along the way, I met up with Tokyo Rubyist Meetup, Asakusa.rb, Minami.rb, and I also visited Iwaki, Fukushima, and Kyoto, where I had the best excuse ever for almost missing out on Railcamp tickets.
