This mail will mostly interest europeans Rubyists/Railists, but others
are welcome to read it, answer and participate too
In next February the Sixth Fosdem (Free and OpenSource Developers’
European Meeting) will be held in Brussels, Belgium. Like each year
there is some special rooms for projects/communities (mozilla, drupal,
kde, gnome, python, openbsd, perl, linux, …). A call for presence
has been made for next year :
allow projects and communities to book a room.
Ruby and Rails are becoming more and more popular in Europe so I think
it could be great to have a developer room to allow lot of Rubyist to
see irl and talk/work/hack/whatever.
If nobody is already planning something (I didn’t see anything in the
archives I can manage the thing receive emails and do the
communication with the Fosdem’s guys.
For a start a wiki with few pages could do the thing and allow
everyone to tell when they want to come and if they want to do
So I got few questions :
- is there anyone already planning something for Ruby or/and Rails ?
- who could be interested in : doing talks, just coming to hack, etc …
- who plans to go to the fosdem ?
As explained in the Fosdem Call for Presence we could book a room to
allow us to have a rendez vous point, a place to idle, talk, hack, etc
… but for that we need to have decided if :
- we want a room
- we want a room for half a day, a whole day, the two days ?
- how many we are going to be
So ? What do you think ?
Any help, and remarks are welcomed.
