I’ve attended a few camps and absolutely love them.
I live in the UK now. I went to Rails Camp Scotland last year. It’s smaller and less well known here.
A question that came up a few times was: "How can I convince my employer that Rails Camp is worthwhile?"
It’s a barrier that didn’t seem to exist as much in Australia because it’s so well known.
I have a 5 minute slot to talk about Rails Camp at a conference. I’d like to crowdsource some answers to help me prepare.
So, As an employee, employer, rails camper, what is your most compelling reason or example that Rails Camp is worthwhile?
