Going To EURUKO 2008 Tomorrow? See You There!
After putting out the call on Ruby Inside in February, the EURUKO European Ruby Conference is breaking all previous records with 300 Rubyists expected to descend on Prague, Czech Republic this weekend (March 29 - 30). The attendee list includes Matz, Koichi Sasada, Charles Nutter and Thomas Enebo of the JRuby team, David Black (Ruby for Rails), Dr. Nic, Peter Szinek (scRUBYt!), me (of this place!), and many more. Even David Heinemeier Hansson will be there in spirit, as he's doing a video session over Skype.
I'll be on site from Friday night through to Sunday afternoon attending the parties, doing interviews, trying to find out about some of the lesser known exciting Ruby projects people are working on, and generally seeing what people are up to. If you're going, do say hi! You'll know who I am because I'll probably be the only person wearing red shoes and red glasses (yes, it's a Ruby theme).. The same also applies to the Ruby Fools conference in Copenhagen next Tuesday and Wednesday (April 1-2) where I'll be doing an "Introduction to Ruby" session. See you there!
I'll be trying to update Twitter with my location, so if you're going to be there, feel free to follow me on Twitter (username: peterc) and let's meet up. I want to do some interviews (video and/or audio) for Ruby Inside and highlight some of the great stuff happening with Ruby here in Europe, so don't be a stranger.. just come and harass me! It'd also be cool if you comment on this post, just to get an idea of who I'll be bumping into.
For those unable to attend, I'll be posting a few summaries of the event over the next few days.
