The second annual Lone Star Ruby Conference was held September 4-6, 2008 in Austin, Texas. YELLOWPAGES.COM and Peep Code Screencasts sponsored the video recording of the conference. This was not our normal gig. At the last minute, it was decided that Confreaks would provide some equipment and resources to assist Mopac Media, who also recorded last year's Lone Star Ruby Conference.

We also teamed up with RailsEnvy to share their 21 minute version of the conference. It is a great overview, and it links back to all of the full presentations.
