CFP : First Ruby and Rails devroom at Fosdem 2008

Hi folks,

The Belgian Ruby U. Group is happy to announce the first Ruby and
Rails devroom at Fosdem 2008. Fosdem is a gathering of Free and Open
Source Software developers and the ideal occasion to meet fellow Ruby
and Rails developers (and 2,000 other FOSS developers). If you have a
good idea for a talk or tutorial, consider sending in an abstract. You
can find the Call for Papers at
http://wiki.rubyist.be/wiki/show/CallForPapers, and quoted below.

See you at Fosdem!

Kind regards,
Peter V.

    Rubinius, IronRuby, …)

    HOWTOs, demos, …)

    challenges, solutions, …)

We accept 10 minute lightning talks, 30 minute and 1 hour regular
talks and tutorials. Please indicate the preferred length of your
talk/tutorial in your proposal. We may still slightly adjust this
length depending on the response we receive.

Please send your abstract to [email protected] before 7 January
2008. It will be reviewed by the program committee and you will
receive a decision by 14 January 2008 if your presentation is
accepted.
The program committee that will evaluate the proposals is comprised
of:

  • David Delabassee (Sun)
  • Laurent Richard (Free Software Consultant)

Entrance to the Fosdem conference and devrooms is entirely free.
Sorry, we cannot give any travel grants to foreign visitors (local
hospitality with one of the organizers is possible to save hotel
costs). In past years, approx. 2,000 people visited the Fosdem
conference. More information on Fosdem can be found at
