Voices That Matter: Professional Ruby Conference
Boston's Voices That Matter: Professional Ruby Conference wrapped up earlier today. Organized by the good folks at Pearson and curated by technical chair Obie Fernandez, the conference borrowed heavily from the short format talks and energy that powered RubyFringe earlier this year, but with a more "enterprise-friendly" demeanor.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to present at the event, so my notes on individual sessions probably aren't as copious as I'd like. However, my good friend and fellow GNHLUG / NH.rb member Ted Roche took excellent notes throughout all 3 days of the conference. I strongly encourage you to check them out if you're passionate about Ruby but couldn't attend. Nick Quaranto has similarly thorough coverage.
Overall, a great conference that I was glad to be a part of. Fascinating presentations, kept short to pack maximum punch (I really do prefer the 30-minute talk format!), lots of smart people, and, as always, great hallway and dinner conversation. The Ruby community never fails to impress and entertain.
