(Luke Melia) #1

*On behalf of the GORUCO organizing team, I'd like to invite you to submit
a talk to our 2018 conference, to be held on June 16th in New York City.
Details below and at http://cfp.goruco.com
<http://cfp.goruco.com>.Warmly,Luke Melia & the GORUCO team# GORUCO 2018 is
now accepting talk proposals!On Saturday, June 16th, [GORUCO][] is
celebrating its 12th convocation as NYC's premier regional software
conference. It's a one-day, single-track event geared toward highly
motivated and experienced developers that's been celebrated for its warm,
personal spirit and strong sense of community.[GORUCO]: http://goruco.com
<http://goruco.com>You can start submitting your proposals at
cfp.goruco.com <http://cfp.goruco.com>. If you have questions, please email
proposals@goruco.com <proposals@goruco.com>.We'd love to see proposals on
topics that bring you joy as an engineer, that show off your architecture
and system design skills, or that demonstrate the craft and care that you
bring to your software or to leading your teams.We welcome talks about
Ruby, the language that formed the roots for this conference But Rubyists
don't only use Ruby, and GORUCO has evolved over the years to match the
community's technical and practical interests.In the past three years,
speakers have presented on diverse topics like Golang, Crystal, Elixir,
NoSQL, BigQuery, distributed systems, AI, reverse engineering hardware, and
static code analysis.We've also had many talks about the human side of
software, as you might expect from a community that values developer
creativity and happiness. Speakers have presented on code hospitality,
refactoring, readability, culture, dogma, mentoring, and learning.You can
view videos of our past speakers for inspiration at videos.goruco.com
<http://videos.goruco.com>.Though we tend to gear our program toward more
experienced developers, we will consider talks intended for all skill
levels and would appreciate if you'd tag your proposal appropriately to
tell us the who the target audience is.## FormatThis year we'll again be
scheduling two talk formats: * full length talk (30 minutes) * micro-talk
(10 minutes)Please tag your proposal if you have a preference for one or
the other (or both if either would be appropriate!).We will be recording
all the talks and making the videos freely available online under a
Creative Commons license. If your talk is accepted, you'll be asked to sign
a consent form.## Speaker BenefitsAll speakers will receive free attendance
to the event. In addition, speakers accepted for a talk will receive a $900
travel reimbursement if you live outside the tri-state region. (Local
speakers will instead receive a $300 honorarium.)## Diversity and
InclusionGORUCO speakers have been extraordinarily diverse, with 43% of the
speakers in 2016 and 2017 identifying as female, and many identifying as
non-Caucasian.The GORUCO organizers, ourselves a diverse group, are
dedicated to continuing this tradition, and strongly encourage members of
under-represented groups to submit proposals.Our first round of reviews
this year, as last year, will be completely anonymous. Please help us by
avoiding putting identifying information in any field except the Bio.##
Code of ConductThe GORUCO organizers strive for the safety and comfort of
everyone at our event. We have a [Code of Conduct][] that will be strictly
enforced, and that we expect all speakers and attendees to follow. Please
review it before submitting your proposals.[Code of Conduct]:
http://goruco.com/code-of-conduct/##
Local Speaker SlotsGORUCO believes in highlighting local talent. We reserve
at least two slots for local speakers. (Individual talks and panels will be
considered "local" if at least half of the participants are from the
tri-state region - that is, within typical commuting distance of
Manhattan.)In the past, these slots have been less competitive than the
other talk slots, so if you live in the tri-state region we strongly urge
you to submit a proposal.## TimelineThe CFP closes at midnight on Tuesday,
April 15th.Early submissions are likely to get a level of attention that
later submissions may not receive, including questions and feedback from
reviewers. Our advice is to submit early if you can!We're planning speaker
selection to be complete by Saturday, April 22nd, and over the week of
April 23rd we'll seek to get confirmation from speakers and lock in the
schedule.You can start submitting your proposals at cfp.goruco.com
<http://cfp.goruco.com>. If you have questions, please email
proposals@goruco.com <proposals@goruco.com>.*

Now that's an unreadable message. You should really leave some
paragraphs instead of writing everything in one line if you want
anyone to read this.
