Got a call earlier this week from Mike Clark that they were having to cancel the pragmatic studio workshops due to low enrollment. Too bad! I was really looking forward to this. And work was even going to foot the bill. Maybe we can get them to come to us.
I thought that at around $700 for a 2 day seminar, it was quite a good deal. So does this mean that 1) there are already plenty of pragmatic programmers out there and there is no room for their improvement, or 2) there aren't enough interested in becoming better programmers, or 3) there aren't enough companies out there in funding their engineers to become more pragmatic?
It doesn't bode well for getting the pragmatic programmers to come to Seattle for a public Ruby on Rails workshop. I might just have to go to them.
