They are both excellent. Railsconf is much bigger in attendance and more diverse in focus, including more business-oriented.
Rubyconf is more purist coder in nature, more intimate.
You say that city doesn't matter, but a conf in Austin that's *not* sxsw should be really exciting and fun.

Anybody have strong feelings either way? I want to be able to attend some seminars on interesting developments, best practices, trends, etc. around rails and ruby and even coffeescript if available. I don't really care about the city so much or extra curricular activities. My company is paying for 1 trip this year, so I can't do both. I am leaning towards RailsConf in Austin. Since I have not been to either, I was wondering what others are thinking of doing.
