Fosdem : Developers Room, Presence

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Thomas Riboulet, Nov 15, 2005.

  1. hi everyone,

    This mail will mostly interest europeans Rubyists/Railists, but others
    are welcome to read it, answer and participate too :)

    In next February the Sixth Fosdem (Free and OpenSource Developers'
    European Meeting) will be held in Brussels, Belgium. Like each year
    there is some special rooms for projects/communities (mozilla, drupal,
    kde, gnome, python, openbsd, perl, linux, ...). A call for presence
    has been made for next year : to
    allow projects and communities to book a room.

    Ruby and Rails are becoming more and more popular in Europe so I think
    it could be great to have a developer room to allow lot of Rubyist to
    see irl and talk/work/hack/whatever.

    If nobody is already planning something (I didn't see anything in the
    archives I can manage the thing receive emails and do the
    communication with the Fosdem's guys.
    For a start a wiki with few pages could do the thing and allow
    everyone to tell when they want to come and if they want to do

    So I got few questions :
    - is there anyone already planning something for Ruby or/and Rails ?
    - who could be interested in : doing talks, just coming to hack, etc ... ?
    - who plans to go to the fosdem ?

    As explained in the Fosdem Call for Presence we could book a room to
    allow us to have a rendez vous point, a place to idle, talk, hack, etc
    ... but for that we need to have decided if :
    - we want a room
    - we want a room for half a day, a whole day, the two days ?
    - how many we are going to be

    So ? What do you think ?
    Any help, and remarks are welcomed.
