Last week, in August 30 - We held a Rails hunt & destroy bugmash in Israel with the unbelieveable courtesy of Ebay Innovation Center in Israel.
This bugmash was born as a result of a discussion in the Israeli Rails group and lead to an amazing event, About 40+ members of the Israeli Rails developers community, including awesome people from Google/Waze, Simplee, Fiverr, Scoreoid and a lot more freelancers and Rails lovers gathered in the Ebay innvation center in Israel at 9:00am (Yes, early as fuck) to hunt down some Rails bugs.
During this day, we used a special application we developed to allow people to choose and take ownership on Rails github issues - which resulted in 15 pull-requests and 1 merge to master so far.
It was an amazing event, that showed the power of the Israeli Rails community - and although we weren’t successful in finding a Rails core member willing to help us online - We managed to get something out of this day. A list of solved bugs and a wonderful day to Open Source.
I would like to thank the awesome guys (and girl) @ the Ebay innovation center, on crafting this event, getting us a south american mean buffet and providing us with an amazing office workspace that helped us achieve this wonderful result - I hope it wasn’t the last time that we are doing it.
Hoping to see more of you there next time!
