Can you tell us David:

  1. Are other Ruby Conferences planned for this year?

  2. If so, would they likely be in different geographic locations?

Thanks.

SDForum is interested in developing the local/regional Ruby and Rails
development communities; they invited Ruby Central to get involved in
order to expand the wider representation in speakers and attendees.

Thanks for the details.

There’s RubyConf :slight_smile: And RailsConf.

RubyConf will be somewhere in the middle two U.S. time zones, and
RailsConf will be in Chicago in June (http://www.railsconf.org).

We were asked whether we’d like to co-produce a conference, and we
said yes :slight_smile:

From the conference page:

“Ruby also features built-in support for Ajax, which is the technology
that provides the revolutionary rich user experience behind Google Maps,
A9 and Writely.”

Interesting. What version of Ruby are the SD people using?

Seems that way. People here know that there are multiple Ruby
frameworks with built-in Ajax support, but I get the sense the SD people
see Ruby as a potential buzzword bandwagon.
