The MountainWest RubyConf 2007, scheduled for the middle of March
(we’ll be publish the final dates in the next week or two), is opening
a call for presenters. We will have about nine 45 minute slots for
talks (with 15 minutes of Q&A/bathroom breaks between them). Ideally,
we’d like to see a good mixture of Ruby and Ruby on Rails talks, with
an emphasis on doing useful stuff and best practices.
Proposals should be submitted to [email protected] in November and
December of 2006 – midnight MST (hey, no complaints, that’s where we
live) on Dec 31st is the cutoff. No late proposals can be accepted,
no exceptions. A proposal should identify the target audience, give a
short blurb about the presenter, and have a short abstract of the talk
itself. Proposals should provide enough information for a small panel
of judges to use as a basis for selection.
The selection process will take place in early January, and all
submitters will be notified by email by the end of January. We hope
to publish our conference schedule in February.
Feel free to suggest ideas here on the mailing list, but please send
submissions to me ([email protected]) instead of the mailing list.
