RubyConf 2007


#1

Hi everyone –

On behalf of Ruby Central, Inc., I’m very happy to announce the
seventh International Ruby Conference:

           RubyConf 2007
           November 2-4, 2007
           Omni Charlotte Hotel
           Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

Stay tuned for announcements about registration, talk proposals, and
hotel arrangements.

A few logistical things:

  • Registration will be $250 for the whole event. (There’s no no-food
    discount this year.)
  • The hotel is offering us a rate of $109 plus tax per night (and
    it’s a nice hotel!).
  • We’re looking for sponsors! Please contact me if interested.

See you in Charlotte!

David Black
for Ruby Central, Inc. and RubyConf 2007

Sweet!

David, would it be possible to set up an RSS feed this year we can
watch for announcements?
It’d make the folks who only read RubyTalk occasionally happy, I think.

Whoo-hoo! Between the Ruby Hoedown in Raleigh and RubyConf in Charlotte,
this is a very lucky year for Ruby programmers in North Carolina!

So much for Canada, eh? :wink:

If Matz isn’t available I vote for Joe Armstrong to deliver the
keynote. Heck, invite Joe regardless.

An Erlang keynote at a Ruby conference? I mean, yes, Erlang’s
interesting, but a keynote?

Excellent. I look forward to attending. I’ll keep my eyes open for
registration details.

Hey, didn’t the creator of Objective-C give a keynote at a previous
RubyConf?

Avi Bryant is doing a keynote at this year’s RailsConf…Why not Joe
Armstrong at
RubyConf?

Exacto mundo. In 2004.

It’s the Ruby culture.
It’s not an Apple keynote where you expect Steve Jobs if there’s to
be anything amazing.
Ruby culture has preferences, but tends to be the type of people who
are interested in concepts and ideas and less in the annoying details.

Oh, but it would be so nice to hear a lot about 1.9/2.0
But you should do it together with Masayoshi T. !
The expert in being non-diligent about presentations.
What could be easier than the Takahashi method done for you?!

I am available. But I will gladly yield keynote privilege to Joe
Armstrong (on Erlang or OO sucks, for example), if he’s willing.
In that case, I will have to prepare only for small presentation this
year. :wink:

I’m not opposed to it, I’m learning Erlang etc., but it did make me
wonder.

Thanks for the offer, but we still want you :slight_smile: And I missed last
year’s, so I definitely need to hear what’s going on :slight_smile:

Well … I’ll do a Forth keynote at a Ruby conference :slight_smile:

It’s not what I know that counts.
It’s what I can remember in time to use.

It wouldn’t be the first time. We had Brad Cox speak in 2004 (he’s
one of the guys who made Objective C). RubyConf is typically
populated by language geeks, so getting a name-brand language guy in
would normally make some sense :slight_smile:

So, we’ll have Joe do the keynote and Matz do a “State of the Union”
speech separately. :slight_smile:

Just a thought. Of course, I’m assuming Joe’s even remotely interested.

Dan

Is there a good location to find people looking for a roommate for
RubyConf 2007? Or if someone here is looking for one, let me know and
we can work out details.
