#002 - feb 16th 2013


This second edition is an occasion to tune up a bit the mailchimp templates, and make the letter readable on phones. Well, it was chinese new year hollidays so I got plenty of time and wanted to add more rubyconf dates. Damn there are so many. I will keep a record at the bottom of each letter, so people can get organized in advance.
