I just booked my ticket.

Has anyone ever been to one? (I haven't) Any tips?

I attended the 2008 RailsConf in Portland, and I had a blast. Not only did I learn a lot, but I met a lot of really cool people.

My only advice would be to try and talk to as many people as you can. There were a lot of really interesting devs there.

Also, find out where the get togethers are happening. RailsMachine had a party on the last night which was a lot of fun.

I'm going, actually speaking; have done that gig there before. Each year it seems a little bigger, and it's been moving locations, so I've never been to a RailsConf in Baltimore.

My biggest advice would be -- bring your laptop, follow the back channel(s) (esp. irc & twitter), and look out for hall track, parties, and opportunities to go out for meals/beers with lots of cool people. Should be a good time.
