Title: Lighning Talks

When: Thursday Oct 21, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Register: Cick here!

Food: Food and Drink will be provided by Near Infinity Corporation.

Description: To celebrate the NovaRUG's 50th meeting (yup, 50!), we will open the floor to lightning talks on whatever subject you want to talk about. As an added incentive, we will vote, and the winner will get a speaking slot at RubyNation 2011 including a free pass to the conference. RubyNation will be held April 1st and 2nd next year.

  • The Awesome Power of Rails Engines by Sean Schofield (20 minutes) - Rails Engines on GitHub
  • The admin_data Gem by Neeraj Singh (10 minutes)
  • Dave Keener (5 minutes)
  • git-based Capistrano deployments by Anthony Burns (5 minutes)
  • Rack by Scott Leberknight (5 minutes)
  • Ruby Refactoring by Camille Bell (10-15 minutes)
  • FasterCSV gem by Charles Calvert
  • CoffeeScript by Ryan McGeary (5-10 minutes)
  • Linux administration with Ruby! by Keith Bennett

Some talks will be more lightning than others, so you can speak longer than 5 minutes if you want. If I know how much time the speaker wants I will make a note of it. Email me at gray dot herter @ gmail.com and I will put your information up here, or just show up and speak.


This will be in NIC's new training center, which is huge and awesome.
