For the past couple of months I’ve been -procrastinating- helping to organize the Ruby track for the Dallas TechFest Dallas TechFest. Its is a language and technology agnostic conference on May 3rd. There are tracks covering Ruby, Java, .NET, Emerging Technologies and Flex. Its a great opportunity to see sessions on your own language of choice while learning what the other guys are up to, all under one roof.
Confirmed speakers for the Ruby track are:
* Jim Hughes
* Yehuda Katz
* Glenn Vanderburg
…and myself. Other presentations of interest to Rubyists:
* Getting started with the ASP.NET MVC framework
* REST: the basics and the not so basic
* Pardon the interruption: what’s the deal with Groovy?
* Developing native applications for the iPhone
* Google Android
I hope you’ll come out on May 3rd, 2008 learn something new, either in the area you work with today, or in a new technology that interests you.
Cost: $0 (!)
Where: Addison Conference and Theatre Center
