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? ;)

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?

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

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

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.

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. ;-)

              matz.

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

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

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

Cool!  I'll have to make sure to get a front row seat!

It's not what I know that counts.

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 :)

So, we'll have Joe do the keynote and Matz do a "State of the Union"
speech separately. :)

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

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.
