International Ruby Conference is now open for registration. Not only
that, but the first 50 people who register for the conference will receive
a free copy of the second edition of the Programming Ruby book
(a.k.a. the PickAxe book) by Thomas and Hunt. See the announcement here.
agenda is looking pretty good. I’m talking about RubyGems this
year (what else!). I’m especially excited to see that David Heinemeier Hansson will be
there and he will be talking about Ruby on Rails which has
been getting a lot of air time recently.
The Conference is relatively inexpensive (only $200 for the conference
fees) and it’s a great time to meet a lot of Rubyists all at once.
The conference is in the Washington DC area (Chantilly, VA), so it is
accessible to a large portion of the east coast.
If you are at all interested in Ruby, I urge to to come and meet with us!
You can register here.
It has just been announced
that Brad Cox, the inventor of Objective-C will be giving the Keynote
speech at the conference.
