Thanks to EURUKO 2008′s Sponsors

By Peter Cooper / April 6, 2008


As anyone who was present at this year's European Ruby Conference, EURUKO 2008, will attest: it was a great event! Over 300 Rubyists from all over Europe (and the world, with attendees from Japan, Australia and the US too) got together to talk, drink, and be merry.

The level of attendance came as a shock to the organizers, but they dealt with it excellently and put on a great event for all of us. Thanks must go to the CSRUG (Czechoslovakian Ruby Users' Group) and its chairman Jiří Kubíček, along with Karel Minařík who played a big role. The Faculty of Philosophy and Arts at Charles University, Prague, also deserves a massive mention for providing such a great venue.

With a (very) minor role in helping to organize the conference, I post on Ruby Inside to thank the sponsors who helped make the event such a success. Their contributions enabled us all to get a pretty cool t-shirt (designed by Thomas Fuchs, of fame), a Ruby notepad, and lots of other swag.
