If you didn’t catch it last year, FOSCON is a free and fun gathering of
Ruby fans held in the evening during O’Reilly’s Open Source Convention.
The speakers will be discussing a wide range of topics of interest to
the Ruby community. And in case that wasn’t enough, pizza will be
provided! We look forward to seeing you there.
