[print link all ]
I am very happy to announce Euruko 2007 in Vienna. A big thanks to Vienna university that gave us rooms for free! I wish the German universities would do that, too.

Please add yourself to the wiki. The pages are still not yet updated: www.approximity.com/cgi-bin/europeRuby/tiki.cgi?c=v&p=Euruko07

See you all here!

The original announcement by Stephan Kaemper

 Hi all,

 after a few weeks of struggling to find a location we finally found a
 place. In fact we also found a new date.
 Sorry for any inconveniences all this back and forth may have caused.

 Euruko 2007 will be located in Vienna, Austia on Saturday & Sunday
 10th and 11th November 2007.

 As before this will also be announced at http://phvalues.wordpress.com
 as well as the Euruko wiki (which we're using  this year, too). The wiki
 is at http://www.euruko.com

 If you're planning to attend or to give a presentation, please use
 the wiki to register and announce your presentation.

 See you in Vienna - or may be in Berlin next week

Ben Krause posted this to ferret-talk.
 ENV['LC_CTYPE'] = 'en_US.UTF-8'
 Ferret.locale = "en_US.UTF-8"

 see http://bugs.omdb.org/browser/trunk/config/environment.rb

 searching for utf-8 works great, i've indexed characters
 in german, english, asian languages, hebrew and other..

Thanks to Hal for passing this useful link: gotapi.com

It’s one of the few links that made it into the expensive real estate of my browser toolbar.

Hey all. No news is good news. We are simply superbusy on a bunch of stealth projects. An update will come soon. Stefan Kaempfer, Mike Lee and many others do a great job organizing Euruko07, so another european ruby conference is on the way.

Here is one update I can talk about .. my hair makeover done by my beautiful wife. That is what I look like right now. Hal called it an "ugly baby" :-).

Enjoy summer!
