RubyNation call for proposals is powered by BusyConf
Planning your own conference? Get started with BusyConf

Want to speak at RubyNation? Then we want to hear from you!

Presentations should focus on helping our attendees by teaching from
your experiences. The audience is primarily practicing rubyists (of
all levels), so talks should lean towards the technical side. All Ruby
related topics will be considered. Each presentation should be 40
minutes long
, including time for questions and discussion.

Keep in mind that our audience will be fully-engaged members of the DC
Area Ruby developer's community. Your presentation should appeal to
them. Presentations should be loaded with code and technical content.
We are engineers. We want to be entertained, amazed, and have fun.
Proposals containing marketing-based content will be sniffed out and

Submit as many proposals as you want. More than one helps you get
selected because we sometimes get similar talks from different people.
If you only submit one, and it duplicates Jim Weirich's talk then you
will probably get cut. Panels or multi-presenter proposals are fine.
Speakers will receive free admission to the conference and the
speakers party/dinner the night before RubyNation, and the opportunity
to address a large audience of talented and influential rubyists!

We plan to videotape all the presentations, and make the videos
available online for free. If that isn't OK, just let us know in your
proposal notes.

Please submit your proposal by 11:59:59 PM ET on Wed, Feb 1st, 2012.
We reserve the right to accept and announce a few proposals before
that time, but not too many. We'll decide that as we go along.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at Your presentation is important to us, we
want to help make it as good as possible.
