Announcing Ruby Meetup at NDC2010

As I’ve told you before, I’m going to talk about IronRuby and IronRuby on Rails in the upcoming Norwegian Developer Conference.
However, it’s not only me that’s talking about IronRuby in NDC2010! Scott Bellware and Ben Hall both have one or more talks involving the Ruby language and how you can exploit it in your .NET development process.

In total, NDC is hosting 5 (!) different IronRuby-related sessions and by that, it is the first one to acknowledge the importance of IronRuby to the .NET community. Kudos for that!

NDC2010 + Ruby = Love!

With that in mind, I’m happy to announce that there’s more!

Scott came up with the idea, Anders helped with the organization and it came alive: the Ruby Meetup in NDC 2010!

The Ruby Meetup is going to take place during launch time of the last day of the conference – June 18th, 12:50-13:40 featuring Scott Bellware, Rob Conery, Ben Hall and myself!
The idea is simple – the panel is about Ruby and IronRuby but we don’t have anything prepared except our knowledge. This means that it’s up to you to come with the questions/comments/problems/whatever and throw them at us!

Hoping to see you all there!
Shay.

P.S. If one of you can bring a CD with IronRuby to the meetup, then we can drop it and finally find out if it makes a sound!



Upcoming Gig: NDC 2010

This June is going to be SENSATIONAL!

On mid June I’ll be doing my way towards Norway to participate in the Norwegian Developer Conference, AKA NDC2010. This conference has a really awesome lineup and I’m really honored to take part in it.

ndc2010

The conference will take place on June 16-18 in Oslo Spectrum in Oslo.

I’ll be doing two sessions, both on the last day of the conference:

When: June 18th, 09:00
Title: Practical IronRuby
Abstract:
Ruby has been a home for some great innovative frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Cucumber and Rake. IronRuby version 1.0 has recently been released, unleashing the power of Ruby to the .NET world.
In this session you will get familiar with the Ruby language and its amazing ecosystem and you will learn to take advantage of it in your everyday development tasks. Come and see how this great new addition to the .NET family makes your development process faster, clearer and happier
(Be prepared for mind-blowing demos!)

When: June 18th, 13:40
Title: Riding IronRuby on Rails
Abstract:
The most famous Ruby–driven framework is, by far, Ruby on Rails. With IronRuby, .NET developers can now take advantage of this incredible web framework without leaving their comfort zone. In this session, Shay Friedman will build an entire Web 2.0 site from scratch while using and explaining the key features of Ruby on Rails.
Come and see what Ruby on Rails is all about and what's made it the success it is today.

See you there!
Shay.



Upcoming Gig: Epicenter 2010

The conference season is coming and it’s time to let you know where and when you can see and meet me!

So…

This June I’ll be speaking at the Epicenter 2010 conference, taking place on June 8th-11th in Dublin, Ireland.

The conference will be hosted in the Arts building of Trinity College, which just looks awesome:

Anyways, it’s technology we’re interested in! So I’m going to have two talks in the conference:

When: June 9th, 11:00
Title: Practical IronRuby
Abstract:
Ruby has been a home for some great innovative frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Cucumber and Rake. IronRuby version 1.0 has recently been released, unleashing the power of Ruby to the .NET world.
In this session you will get familiar with the Ruby language and its amazing ecosystem and you will learn to take advantage of it in your everyday development tasks.
Come and see how this great new addition to the .NET family makes your development process faster, clearer and happier!
(Get ready for some crazy demos here!)

When: June 10th, 15:15
Title: Ruby on Rails Vs. ASP.NET MVC
Abstract:
2010 is the year when two great web development frameworks arrive at the .NET world – ASP.NET MVC 2.0 and Ruby on Rails (via IronRuby). It is the time to get to know these frameworks and learn their advantages and disadvantages. In this session I will walk you through the good, the bad and the ugly of both frameworks providing you points to consider when coming to choose one of them.
Come and see how these two wonderful web development frameworks collide!

In addition to these talks I’ll also participate on Wednesday’s evangelist night along with Jamie Van Dyke and Julian Fitzel.

By the way, I’m staying in Dublin for a few days after the conference as well so if you’re in Dublin, let me know and we’ll go grab a pint!

See you there!
Shay.
