PDX.rb presents FOSCON III: Really Radical Ruby

Once again the Portland Ruby Brigade will be hosting an evening of
wide ranging talks about Ruby. This year the focus is on people doing
strange things with Ruby. Strange, of course, is anything just a bit
outside the usual. If you’ve created a new Ruby-based interface for
hacking your brand new internet-enabled phone (rPhone anyone?) or
composed your latest bit of metaprogramming magic, we’d love to hear
about it.

Rather than having a fixed list of presenters, we’re keeping it
open-ended and free form. We’ll use the lightning talk inspired
approach and give you each a 10 minute slot to tell us what you can
cram in. Make it especially interesting and we might even give you an
extra minute or two. We’ve already selected the first 8 speakers, but
there will be at least a couple slots held open until the day of the
event. The speaker lists currently includes: Greg Borenstein, Lennon
Day-Reynolds, Giles B., John L., Ola B., Ian D., Micheal
Buffington and Luke K…

This will all be taking place on Tuesday, July 24th, 7:30PM at
Holocene (http://www.holocene.org/) here in Portland, Oregon. This
just happens to be the same week as O’Reilly’s Open Source Convention
and the final day of Ubuntu Live. So if you’re in town for either of
those or close enough to come join us anyway, you’re more then
welcome.

There will be plenty of Ruby fun going on and lots of socializing with
other people interested in Ruby. Last year, FOSCON II was overflowing.
We’ve found a new venue to fit you all in, so why would you miss it?
Oh, did I mention the free pizza?
