[ANN] Deadline for RubyConf 2006 Presentation Proposals

Hi --

I realize I didn't include a deadline in the last announcement. So
here it is: June 30. (It was June 23, but since I forgot to include
it in the announcement, I'm extending it by a week :slight_smile:

The site for presentation proposal submissions is:

http://proposals.rubygarden.org

Please contact me if you have any pre-submission questions.

Thanks!

David
for Ruby Central, Inc. and RubyConf 2006

How big are the time slots? Is there a way to propose shorter talks (20
or 30 min)?

Suggestion: The index page for http://proposals.rubygarden.org should have, right up front, all the main details, so that one does not have to register to find out, for example, the deadline, the proposal format, how long talks are expected to be, and so on.

Thanks; not looking to make more work for David, but it may save him time in answering these question by list or E-mail if this info is more readily available.

As currently planned they're all pretty uniform, at 45-55 minutes.

I would really, really, really like to see a lightning talk session or two.

Letting people talk for only five minutes lets you hear about lots of fascinating things very rapidly.

Please, please, please give us lightning talks.

I agree. The lighting talks at the Ruby conference in Japan were fun.

Yes, please! I proposed these for OSCon a couple of years
ago (called them Ruby Flashes or something), but they didn't fly.

I'd love to see them at RubyConf. (and as a BoF at OSCon if
people are interested)
