a couple of weeks back I already made an announcement about this
year’s European Ruby Conference (EURUKO).
Currently it’s planned for the weekend on the 3rd and 4th of
November, which very unfortunately clashes nearly perfectly with
RubyConf in in Charlotte, North Carolina (http://rubyconf.org/).
Turns that it hard to find a date matching every constraint:
Shouldn’t clash with either of: RailsConf(s), local public holidays,
other conferences but should also be considerably earlier than
Christmas (which rules out December)…
When the decision was made about the date I was entirely unaware of
the RubyConf date. Sure enough: The planning for EURUKO 2008 needs to
start a lot earlier.
However we’d be extremely happy to get some more feedback on what
those who plan to come would like to see.
The general set up is like this:
- We’re keeping the conference fee as low as possible -
last year it was just 20 Euro.
- The planning of the talks was quite dynamic, some folks who
came as ‘attendant-only’ gave presentations later the same day,
- It’s your conference, so if you like to just contribute.
So here’s another request for comments - to my e-mail, one of the
blog posts over at phvalues.wordpress.com or just here.
What topics would you see covered by the presentations?
Would you attend if the date wouldn’t clash with RubyConf?
And if so, what other date would you propose.
Do you plan to come to this year’s EURUKO?
