Philly Emerging Tech Conference Roster Includes Several Rubyists: March 26-2

Registration is open for the annual Emerging Technologies for the
Enterprise Conference (a.k.a. "Philly Emerging Tech" and "ETE"), which
is set for March 26-27, just outside of Philadelphia

There will be a kick-off party on the evening of the 25th and an
after-hours event following the presentations on the 26th.

This conference features a variety of languages and technologies and
has always offered a strong Ruby line-up. Members of the Ruby
community who will be speaking this year include:

-- David Black, author of Ruby for Rails and The Well-Grounded Rubyist

-- David Chelimsky, RSpec Lead Developer

-- Corey Haines, of Pair Programming Tour
(http://programmin...­) and "How I Got Started in
Programming" Interviews (http://geekstoryc...­) fame

-- Brian Marick, Agile Manifesto co-author; author of Everyday
Scripting with Ruby

-- Gregg Pollack and Jason Seifer, of the Rails Envy Podcast

-- Nick Sieger, JRuby core team member

-- Ezra Zygmuntowicz, creator of the Merb framework and co-founder of
Engine Yard

The keynote speakers will be Andy Hunt, co-founder of The Pragmatic
Programmers, and Michael Tiemann, VP of Open Source Affairs for

Other speakers include jQuery creator John Resig; Bill Dudney, author
of Core Animation for the iPhone and co-author of iPhone SDK
Development; Ed Burnette, author of Hello, Android: Introducing
Google's Mobile Development Platform; and Jascha Franklin-Hodge
(co-founder and CTO of Blue State Digital, the company that helped
create and manage Barack Obama's online social network).

If you register before February 15, the cost is $240 per person. The
cost goes down to $180 per person if you can take advantage of the
Bird Group Discount (3 passes for the price of 4). After February 15,
the cost goes up to $290 per person or $217 per person for the Group
Discount, which I still think is a great deal for this conference.

Last year, the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference sold out.
