Rails Camp is a full weekend retreat for people interested in web development to gather and be awesome together. People attend for a variety of reasons: socializing, hacking, learning, teaching, gaming, and more. Though there is a focus on Ruby, we welcome anyone interested in programming or web technologies to join us.
The venue has rooms with bunks as well as areas available for camping. Since it will be outside of fire danger season, we will be able to have a campfire.
A bus will be at the Adelaide Airport at 3pm. We recommend you book flights that arrive in Adelaide no later than 2pm. We will stop in the CBD to pick people up at 3:30 and then travel to the camp. We will stop at a shopping centre and bottle shop on the way for people to buy any snacks and beverages they’d like (meals are provided though!).
On Monday a bus will depart from the camp by 10am heading back to Adelaide airport via the CBD. We recommend you book flights that leave Adelaide after 12pm (noon).
We’ll be releasing a COVID-safe plan soon. You can download the SA Goverment App so you can check in using a QR code.
We will ensure we have sufficient seating, hand washing facilities and cleaning regimes.
By default, every ticket includes a bed in a shared dorm room. We have gendered dorms, unisex dorms and couples rooms which you can choose from after purchase. There is also a camping space if you so choose, but you need to bring your own tent. Please let us know when purchasing your ticket
The campground has pockets of 3g depending on your carrier, some of which are inside, which is handy because of rain. It's probably best to assume you won't have internet access and plan accordingly.
We will provide a server with libraries and docs. If you need to Stack Overflow something, ask the person next to you!
Unfortunately, we can't accommodate unaccompanied minors, please look into meetups and workshops in your area. If a parent is attending then we may be able to make arrangements. Please contact us before purchasing your ticket.
We are committed to providing food and drinks to accommodate all attendees needs, just let us know your requirements during ticket purchase and we will make sure you are catered for. If you have severe allergies please include this information and bring along your EpiPen.
We do! If you identify as part of a group that is underrepresented in tech, you can apply for an opportunity ticket. Opportunity tickets work exactly the same as regular ones.
If you would like to help us extend the reach of these tickets, you can make a donation via the tickets page.
