Alt::BrightonRuby: A slightly odd, quasi-conference for strange times by Andy Croll.
There's no in-person BrightonRuby this year, but Andy is still trying to bring Ruby-ists and other software folk together.
It will be recorded talks, a physical book, and a podcast. Delivered throughout June/July 2020.
Plus a donation to Shelter's Coronavirus appeal.
On sale now. 29Euros + tax (which works out to a very affordable about $36.50 + tax in U.S. dollars!)
P.S.: A trusted source tells us that the book is a beautifully typeset copy of Why's Poignant Guide.
