375Ruby Community plans for FOSS.IN/2006
- Oct 20, 2006Hi All,
FOSS.IN/2006 (http://foss.in) is around the corner and
I have no doubt this year also the conference will
I was discussing with some of the co-members about
what we can do in FOSS.IN for Ruby in particular.Some
of the things we thought are:
a.BOF sessions - Since this year the organizing
committee has changed the selection format,I think
there will be a very few slots for each of the
technologies.So we can cover a majority of the
subjects by organizing different BOF sessions.
Some the topics that I can think of are:
a.A small Ruby Tutorial
b.Do's and Dont's in Ruby
c.Coding Standard in Ruby
d.Ruby Libraries - Basic and advanced
f.Why Ruby on Rails and not Why not J2EE
And there can be several.If someone can take the lead
on Nitro/Og or Camping,it will be great.
b.Ruby Coding Camp - We can have some small hackathon
c.Showcasing Ruby Projects - There are many developers
who contribute to various Ruby/Rails projects;this is
a good time to showcase these projects to the Open
Source Community.We can have some kind of stall or any
small dispaly area,where this can be arranged.
These are some of my suggestions.This cannot be done
alone and the community support will be needed.Feel
free to add/delete/modify the list.
I am copying this email to Ruby-India and PuneRuby
group.The members of the other groups in India can
copy the same and put it their groups ML.
If you find the suggestion interesting,then I would
suggest we discuss it in the Ruby-India group as that
is the centralized group.However,members can discuss
among their local groups and bring the gist to the
Ruby-India and we can take it from there.
Wish you will a very happy diwali.
