    Hey there, Are there any speakers yet. Not sure how this works. Is there a schedule???

    October 28, 2013

    • Pat A.

      Hi Jason - there's certainly speakers, Mario and I will get things updated here in the next 24 hours. The schedule is generally as follows: rock up around 6pm, a bit of socialising, then at 6:30 we kick off the official proceedings, talk about what's been happening in the Ruby scene over the last month, people who are hiring have the opportunity to talk briefly about what roles they need filled, and then the speakers give their talks, and dinner arrives (usually pizza, though we're investigating other options) in amongst that. More socialising afterwards, and people usually leave around 9pm or so.

    Right - I was down to do a talk at this one - but had it in my Calendar as the previous week (does anyone know how to tell Google Calendar to do a repeat event on the LAST Thursday of each month ?)

    Regrettably, in order to save some cash, I'll be on a plane to Sydney during this session (the Thurs night flight being much cheaper than Friday morning flight for Railscamp).

    So if anyone wants to hear all about Ansible as a provisioning tool, I'll be doing the beta version* of my talk at Railscamp, and then still putting my hand up to present v1.0 of the talk, now in November though !

    (*I can also do the alpha version of my talk from Seat 14C on Jetstar flight, but seating - and leg room - for that talk would be very limited indeed)

    Anyone looking to do a talk, I advise you to ping Mario or Pat.

    Mario, Pat - I suck, I'm sorry.
