Spring and Summer Gigs

Posted by Nick Sieger Fri, 18 Apr 2008 17:25:16 GMT

Just a quick note on some upcoming gigs. I’ll be speaking next month at both JavaOne and RailsConf, giving an update on the JRuby deployment situation, which by the way is rapidly improving! Despite my proposal for a hands-on tutorial on JRuby deployment not getting accepted for RailsConf, I’ve been asked to fill one of the Sun-sponsored talk slots again. So, much like RailsConf EU last fall, if you come listen I promise you will not get a heavy sales pitch from me! Do stop by, I may even have a couple goodies in store for you.

I also feel privileged to be speaking at RubyFringe this summer, where I haven’t yet determined exactly what I’ll be talking about (although it will probably have some connection to JRuby).

Hope to see you at one of these upcoming events!

Update: We just re-jiggered the schedule of 3 JRuby-related talks at JavaOne, including mine, so that they flow better from beginning to end of the week. My talk is now on Thursday morning instead of Wednesday morning. In addition, Charlie and Tom’s is on Tuesday, and Ola’s is on Wednesday. If you’re attending JavaOne and are interested in JRuby-related talks, please make sure you log into Schedule Builder and re-check your schedule.

    I’m surprised they would reject a JRuby tutorial, and kind of bummed to hear that. I would have made it a priority to attend that one. -Ethan

    Ethan: Yeah, I was surprised too, especially since our tutorial last year got great reviews and Rails support is way better now than it was then. Make sure you voice your disappointment if there’s an opportunity. If we hadn’t raised our concerns to RubyCentral et al there wouldn’t even be a general JRuby session.
