*********** erubycon **************

erubycon, the conference that answers the question: is Ruby ready for
the enterprise? Many of you out there have stood back and watched as
Ruby and Ruby on Rails have gained popularity. Many of you have had the
same questions:

* Can I use it for real applications?
* Can I integrate it with my current systems?
* Will it scale?

We have gathered an exceptional group of speakers to come and share
their experiences with Ruby in Enterprise organizations. These speakers
will answer these questions and more. The speakers have had extensive
experience and success in many environments such as Java and .NET. They
have also found tremendous success and enjoyment with Ruby.

* Bruce Tate, international speaker and best selling author of nine

titles including Better, Faster, Lighter Java, and Bitter Java has
recently written the popular From Java to Ruby: Things Every Manager
should Know will give us an overview of how he has helped organizations
accelerate their development and increase effectiveness thanks to the
Ruby language.

    realize that you really can use a nintendo to get your point across at
    a conference talk.

  • Justin Gehtland, co-author of the recent Pragmatic Ajax and Rails
    for Java Developers will share his experiences and successes he has had

    Rails for Java Developers, international speaker, and trainer who has
    trained some of the top consulting organizations in the country on Ruby
    and Ruby on Rails. Stuart will bring his exceptional teaching style and
    extensive experience to the conference and demonstrate what this
    language can do for you.

    Art of Java Web D., and international speaker who frequently
