Speaking Twice At ABLEconf: Saturday, September 20th, 2008

I’ll be giving two sessions this Saturday, September 20th, 2008 at ABLEconf: Arizona Business and Liberty Experience hosted at the University of Advancing Technology. The first will be a ~50 minute getting-started-with-ruby-on-rails type session aimed at developers similar to the one I’m giving this Wednesday for Joe Developer. The second will be a plug-heavy talk over how OpenRain does F/OSS-friendly web development in the commercial space using F/OSS software and tools, targeted for a business-minded crowd.

ABLEconf is a new event so I’m not sure what to expect, though I’d put my money on a lot of systems-level event content since much of the participation seems to be from local Linux groups.

Presenting Journeta At RubyConf 2008

I’m happy to report that my session proposal on the Journeta P2P library has been accepted by the RubyConf 2008 selection committee; I’ll be presenting sometime between November 6th-8th in Orlando, Florida. Awesomely also, fellow hardcore OpenRain‘r Marc Chung has been accepted to speak on Ruby2Ruby.

This ups the pressure for OpenRain and the community to release some mind-warping Journeta applications before the conference. If you’re planning on developing a swanky new application with Journeta, please ping me for possible collaboration and/or inclusion into the session. And I thought yesterday’s live demo was suicidal… 🙂
