RuPy 2009

March 18th, 2009

Hi! We are sorry for the delay with this info, but RuPy 2009 is coming. We will be announcing the date within the month, but expect RuPy to come back around fall.

RuPy 2008 summary

April 17th, 2008

RuPy 2008 is over. We've prepared a survey for our participants which was sent out - if we've skipped you let us know and we'll send you the address.

We will be putting up the conference pictures up on flickr with rupy2008 and rupy tags. We encourage you all to do the same. We'll also let everyone know when the conference videos are up on youtube. Most probably we'll publish a brief summary of the survey as well - thanks for the input so far!

We're also terribly sorry for canceling one of the talks of the second day. Adrian Pacala couldn't come to the conference which we found out last minute. We'll do our best to avoid such situations in the future and inform everyone promptly if they occur.

If you feel like discussing RuPy or want to leave a link to a blog where you've written a few words about the conference go ahead and subscribe to the rupy-discussions google group.

Hope you've had fun on RuPy,

RuPy team

We also open up submission of "contributed talks" which are aimed at members of local Ruby and Python communities, who might want to give a smaller talk about their smaller (though not necessarily) projects. All our speakers are offered full board and are free to participate in all the RuPy 2008 events (including the "geek party"). Invited speakers are offered free accommodation as well as a possibility to refund some travel costs if needed.
