RailsConf Europe 2007: Call for Participation is Open

Sebastopol, CA, February 13, 2007—To meet the increasing demand for skill building, and to spread the joy of Rails, Ruby Central and O’Reilly Media are teaming up to produce RailsConf Europe 2007, an entire conference dedicated to Ruby on Rails. Happening September 17-19 in Berlin, Germany, RailsConf Europe will offer keynotes, sessions, and tutorials from the most innovative and successful Rails experts and organizations. O’Reilly Media and Ruby Central are seeking leaders to present sessions and tutorials at the conference. Qualified practitioners with insights and anecdotes to share with IT professionals and the Rails community are invited to submit a proposal by April 12, 2007.

The Ruby on Rails development framework turns three years old this summer, and in that short time, it has gone from cult favorite to major player in the Web development world. By every measure—feature richness, adoption, publications, developer reception—Rails is a phenomenon, and one that’s here to stay.

The conference committee is looking for presentations and/or tutorial proposals from Rails developers and hackers, Rubyists at large, Rails trainers, designers with a Rails focus, managers, entrepreneurs—anyone with Rails experience, expertise, and insight.

Proposals should focus on helping attendees by teaching from experience. Any Rails-related topic will be considered. Below are some specific areas the committee would like to see represented at the conference:

  • Timesaving developer productivity tips, tricks, and tools
  • Spotlights on important Rails subsystems
  • Making the most of new Rails features
  • Rails development case studies, including application rewrites and organizational boot-strapping
  • Migrating applications and people from other technologies to Rails
  • Gem and plug-in highlights
  • Patterns and best practices
  • Extending Rails

RailsConf Europe 2007 will bring together hundreds of Rails practitioners from Europe and around the world, for three days of presentations, tutorials, and Rails comradery. Last year’s event sold out completely and we are expecting an even greater number of participants in Berlin for RailsConf Europe 2007. Attendees will include Ruby and Rails enthusiasts, web developers and programmers from all sizes and types of organizations, open source developers and hackers, IT managers tracking emerging technologies, tech-savvy entrepreneurs, and users at every level of expertise.
