RailsConf 2010 Call For Proposals
Call closed 11:59pm 03/17/2010 EDT.
RailsConf 2010 will be held June 7-10, 2010 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD – and Ruby Central and O’Reilly Media are now accepting proposals for conference sessions and tutorials. Proposals are due at 11:59pm EDT March 17, 2010.
Bring us your hardcore technical know-how!
Proposals should focus on helping attendees by teaching from experience. Any Rails-related topic can be proposed. We’re specifically looking for a large number of advanced-level proposals. With so many excellent books and online resources available, we think the RailsConf audience would benefit from a larger helping of hardcore technical topics, particularly around design or coding techniques, testing tools, and deployment techniques.
If you’re a:
- Rails hacker
- Web developer
- Rails system administrator
- or other interested, qualified practitioner with insights and stories you’d like to share with almost 2000 other Rails developers and IT professionals, tell us about it!
Most importantly, be sure to show code! The best presentations are the ones that focus on real examples.
Some specific areas we’d like to see represented are:
- Time-saving developer productivity tips, tricks, and tools
- Patterns and best practices for developing maintainable Rails applications
- Rails Internals
- Complex domain modeling
- Rails development case studies, including application rewrites and organizational bootstrapping
- Making Rails
- Heterogeneous systems integration
- Real-world deployment and scaling
- Making the most out of new Rails features
- Gem and Plugin highlights
- Extending Rails
Please be clear about the experience and knowledge level of the audience that you are targeting: novice, intermediate, or expert. While the majority of the program will focus on intermediate- and expert-level content, we expect to include some introductory material as well.
Here are some other resources that may help you write your proposal:
- See the list of sessions chosen for the 2009 program and read their descriptions
- Watch video from last year’s keynotes
- See speaker presentation files from 2009
- Read the News & Coverage from RailConf 2009
Submit your proposal – Proposals are due March 17, 2010
