GoRuCo 2008 Videos <p>The videos from the conference have now been posted. Check them out at <a href="http://goruco2008.confreaks.com/">http://goruco2008.confreaks.com/</a>.</p> <p>Many thanks to our friends at Confreaks for working so hard to get these videos posted as quick as possible.</p> Mon, 28 Apr 2008 22:07:41 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/28/goruco-2008-videos/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/28/goruco-2008-videos/ GoRuCo 2008 is over <p>The streamers have all been pulled down, and the bar&#8217;s all out of banana daiquiris&#8212;which must mean that GoRuCo 2008 is officially over. We organizers had a ton of fun, and we hope you all did too: listening to Giles rant about &#8220;Muppet Fuckers&#8221;, getting down with the deep math-fu of Paul&#8217;s talk, marveling over the access point, swanking it up at the Tribeca Grand, and for some of us, finally, finally, singing some goddamned karaoke. Ah, karaoke. At the end of that long day and night it was like an oasis in the desert&#8212;if that oasis were full of people screaming Bon Jovi at the top of their lungs. And if instead of water, you had beer.</p> <p>We are recommending those of you who are blogging, posting photos, etc., to use the tag &#8220;goruco2008&#8221;. You can already see a lot of photos on <a href="http://flickr.com/photos/tags/goruco2008/">Flickr</a>, and see a handful of <a href="http://del.icio.us/tag/goruco2008">del.icio.us links</a> too.</p> <p>And Confreaks will be posting videos of every single talk online, for free, in the near future. Watch this space for that announcement.</p> <p>Thanks to everyone who came, and we hope to see you next year!</p> Sun, 27 Apr 2008 17:19:30 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/27/goruco-2008-is-over/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/27/goruco-2008-is-over/ Don't forget about RejectConf RejectConf! All the cool kids are doing it. If you have something quick to say, don't forget that we've got an hour set aside at the end of the day for people to get up and talk about random stuff. And our RejectConf master of ceremonies will be none other than Mister RejectConf himself, Ryan Davis. So, if your talk was actually rejected, or you just created the coolest Ruby thing ever in the last week, keep in mind that you'll have a chance to tell everyone about it at the end of the day.

But the general outline of the day is still the same: Registration at 9 a.m., opening remarks at 9:45 a.m., first talk at 10 a.m.</p> Mon, 21 Apr 2008 18:15:37 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/21/agenda-up/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/21/agenda-up/ Last-minute speaker change <p>We have a last-minute program change to announce: Alex Payne isn&#8217;t going to be able to come to GoRuCo next Saturday and give his talk. In Alex&#8217;s place, we have arranged for Ryan Davis to give his talk &#8220;Hurting Code for Fun and Profit&#8221;.</p> <p>It&#8217;s certainly not ideal to have to change the program at such a late date, and Alex&#8217;s talk will be greatly missed. That being said, we&#8217;re excited to be able to include Ryan&#8217;s talk in the program, and we&#8217;re still looking forward to a great Ruby-filled day for all our attendees.</p> <p>If you&#8217;re interested in who&#8217;s going to be speaking at what time, you should know that we will be re-arranging the schedule to accommodate this change in the program. Hopefully we can get something decided and posted within the next day or so.</p> <p>See you all in nine days!</p> Fri, 18 Apr 2008 02:00:32 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/18/last-minute-speaker-change/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/18/last-minute-speaker-change/ Faces page on wiki <p>We've created a page to make meeting up at and around the conference easier - post a pic, your name, and maybe some background info under <a href="http://wiki.goruco.com/wiki/show/Who%27s+Attending">Who's Attending</a>. </p> Wed, 16 Apr 2008 16:23:22 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/16/faces-page-on-wiki/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/04/16/faces-page-on-wiki/ Morph Labs Giving Away a Ticket! <p><a href="http://morphexchange.com">Morph Labs</a>, one of our Empire Sponsors, has graciously decided to give away one of their sponsor seats to one lucky person.</p> <p>All you need to do to get a chance at this ticket to the sold-out event is sign up for the <a href="http://lists.morphexchange.com/">Morph newsletter</a> and then email <a href="mailto://espino_m@yahoo.com">Manuel Espino</a> and let him know you&#8217;re interested.

You may notice that we&#8217;ve chosen six speakers, not five: When the program panel met, we decided we had too many good proposals to limit ourselves to five and bumped it up by one. If you saw how many great proposals we had to turn down, you would&#8217;ve done the same thing.</p> Tue, 12 Feb 2008 01:01:09 GMT http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/02/12/speakers-announced/ http://2008.goruco.com/articles/2008/02/12/speakers-announced/
