Ruby Fools Conference in Denmark – April 1 & 2, 2008

By Peter Cooper / January 25, 2008


Ruby Fools is a new, European Ruby-focused conference being hosted in Copenhagen, Denmark on April 1st and 2nd. It's being organized by Trifork, the company behind the popular QCon and JAOO conferences. I'm going to be speaking there on the first day giving my "Introduction to Ruby" presentation between 11am and midday. Unfortunately I'm on at the same time as Evan Phoenix will be giving a presentation on Rubinius, which makes me a little nervous, but I can certainly promise plenty of sizzle.. preparations are already underway! Along with Evan Phoenix, there's a large collection of other speakers, including Dave Thomas, Dr. Nic Williams, Jeremy McAnally, Cloves Carneiro Jr., Stefan Tilkov, James Cox and Sam Aaron.

It's worth noting that Euruko 2008 is currently scheduled to be merely two days before Ruby Fools. Unfortunately the site isn't up yet to announce it fully, but if you're flying in from overseas, you might want to come a few days early and attend a more down-to-earth, beer-laden, Ruby-hacking affair down in Prague, Czech Republic (and supposedly costing just 20 Euro). I'll be announcing that event here on Ruby Inside very soon, and would love to see everyone there too.

    There's also RuPy ( on the 12-13th of April in the central european area. It's a Ruby & Python conference.

    The CPH one is actually a roadshow of sorts; it continues to Oslo ( -- the site is not quite complete yet it seems)

  3. Peter Cooper says:

    Yeah, I'm not going to be at Oslo, but you are right. Shame it clashes with Scotland on Rails though!

  4. Ben says:

    Looks like a great conference, Peter - I just wish I'd known about it before now, though. Has anyone put out a comprehensive list of Ruby (and Rails) conferences yet? The attempts I've seen in the past have been ... lacking.
