Announcing Ruby DCamp

Registration is now open for Ruby DCamp (, an
Open Spaces-style Ruby conference. The conference is on the weekend of
October 11th and 12th at the Holiday Inn at Ballston, Arlington,
Virginia (in the Washington DC metro area). It’s metro accessible, and
parking at the hotel is free for all attendees. The hotel has provided
us a discounted rate of $109 plus tax for the nights of October 10th and
11th (just tell them you’re with Ruby DCamp). Conference registration
costs $100 for the two days if you register by October 6th, and $125 if
you register October 7th or later.

As an Open Spaces conference, there are no hired speakers or fixed
agendas – attendees themselves are the speakers, and organize the
schedule. We propose our own content, and vote on the candidates.
Although there may be some conventional style presentations, there is no
restriction on the activity – it could also be a round table discussion
or a hack session. Bored with a session? No problem – you are
encouraged to leave it anytime and find another one that better suits

Attendance is limited to 150 people, so please sign up soon. We
welcome Rubyists at all levels from all over.
