So who's coming to RubyFringe?

…I am! Hope you meet some of you guys over here.

Can we still get tickets??

I live in Toronto, but didn’t hear about this one until a few weeks ago.

Very very unlikely, also it starts…tomorrow. So you don’t have much
time. :slight_smile:

Although there are two events you can come to for free. Failcamp
tomorrow (free but part of RubyFringe) -
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=21677242812 and the, now
legendary, Rails Pub Nite -
http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=rails+pub+nite where I imagine there
will be a lost of post-Rubyfringe reflection.

There seem to be an increasing number of Ruby events whose organizers don’t
bother announcing on ruby-talk.

ruby-talk seems to be the real fringe, nowadays.

…or even coordinating with other Rubyists in their community.

-austin, going anyway

I don’t think anyone at Unspace is the mailing list type. Although I can
faithfully deny the fact that they don’t coordinate with the community.
They are the ones that developed the Ruby community in Toronto and are
further developing by organizing this conference in the first place.

I don’t know exactly how RubyFringe was promoted but it has been sold
out for quite a while so they didn’t need any additional publicity.

Fret not! If it’s any good I’m sure they’ll be another one.

This statement is not correct. They did not develop the Ruby
community in Toronto. They tapped a growing Rails community in
Toronto, but they did nothing for the Ruby community as such. Hint:
look at trug.ca for the Ruby community in Toronto. I didn’t start it,
and I miss the meetings as often as I make them, but that’s what I
mean—there are people who equate Unspace with Ruby in Toronto. I’ve
been trying to get RubyConf (the real Ruby conference) to come to
Toronto for several years.

I like Pete F. a lot, and he wouldn’t make this claim. Don’t make it
for him.

As always there the temptation to lump together Rails and Ruby.
Afterall, what is good for Rails is good for Ruby too; just about.

Also trug.ca, correct me if I’m wrong is a small community compared with
the ~40 attendees of Rails Pub Nite.

Small, but long-preexisting the Rails community in Toronto.

It’s based in part on a long-standing misconception of how TRUG works.

I’d dispute that what’s good for Rails is good for Ruby, at that. But
that’s a discussion for a different time and a different place.

That’s ~40 for each Pub Nite not in total. :slight_smile:

I agree on both counts. :slight_smile:
