With regard to the logistics of the event, the first thing that's sure to be noted is our decision to introduce tickets. While it's true that everyone likes to hear the word free, a contribution helping to cover the costs of the event makes it possible for us to offer higher standards of quality during an intense and, we hope, enjoyable day. Thanks to the numerous sponsors who are supporting us, we've been able to keep the cost down. In this way, in addition to a very respectable event location, we will be able to offer all participants lunch and a fantastic T-shirt included in the ticket price!
We've been working hard to draw up the event programme (a difficult job when so many proposals arrive!). We have chosen to invite numerous foreign speakers to inspire us with their ideas, meaning that many of this year's talks will be English.
The plan is to have two tracks working simultaneously: the first track will centre on exchanges between developers who have experience of ruby and of the new technological developments that are taking place within the ruby community, in particular those relating to web development. Topics covered will include ReactJS, Elixir and JSON API. Here developers will have the opportunity to share their Ruby insights and experiences with one another. The second track, in contrast, will be designed for those who are coming to Ruby for the first time or are only now beginning to experiment with the language. It will take place in a dedicated room and will feature, amongst other things, workshops explaining best practices for organization, security and micro-services.
