What is the London Ruby Unconference?
It is the first London based conference in a few years and it is organised for the community so that it is very affordable. It is excellent value!
Most of the Uk ruby conferences are now dominated by experts from abroad, we want to give the opportunity to the local talent to speak up.
An Unconference is a very good format to share experiences that are relevant and non-biased.
What is an Unconference? Why an Unconference?
“An unConference is all about people”. Typically at an unconference, the agenda is created by the attendees at the beginning of the meeting. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a time. Unconferences typically feature open discussions rather than having a single speaker at the front of the room giving a talk, although any format is permitted.
An Unconference is an excellent format to create an event that is relevant, transparent and affordable. We also want to encourage the participation of the London ruby developers so that the community spirit is strengthen.
In terms of organisation we hope an unconference would be easier than a traditional conference, but we need more the support of the community to attend and participate actively at the event. Please get your tickets here!
How long is an average talk? How many talk I can expect to attend during the day?
The final schedule will be announced soon, however, we would like to have between 8 to 16 sessions.
The Unconference space can be divided in internal spaces (2 to 4) and each space could have 4 sessions during the day.
Does some experienced speaker will be there too?
Yes, we have very experienced speakers attending. Speakers from the major Uk Ruby conferences are attending, as well as speakers with international experience in the USA. London is a place with a lot of experienced developers.
We would also like to encourage the participation of other active Ruby communities in Bath, Oxford, Cambridge, IpSwitch, Brighton, Reading, Norwich to name a few.
