The upcoming Emerging Technologies For The Enterprise conference,
being held at Drexel U. on the 28th and 29th of this month, has a
great lineup of speakers presenting on Ruby and Rails related topics.
Among these are our own Toby DiPasquale who will be presenting "Comet:
Low-Latency Collaborative Web Applications" and Erin Mulder who will
be presenting "Ruby In The Enterprise". I'm not going to miss those.
Other presenters include:

- David Black, author of "Ruby for Rails: Ruby Techniques for Rails
Developers" and major contributor to the Ruby community in so many
ways, will be presenting "Rails Routing Roundup".
-  Geoffrey Grosenbach, host of the "Ruby On Rails" podcast and author
of the PeepCode series will be presenting "Accessible Ajax Development
with Ruby on Rails".
- Amy Hoy, of Slash7 (, will be presenting
"When Interface Design Attacks!"
- Andrew Kortina, Rails Developer and contributor to,, and, will be presenting "Application
of Market Tracking Concepts in Rails".
- Brian McCallister, Core Architect of Ning and VP of Apache Software
Foundation will be presenting "Rails 101".

These are just the Ruby/Rails related presentations, for a full list
please see the conference site at
Note that while the conference is 2 days, you can register for just
one day.

In the interest of full disclosure I do work for Chariot Solutions,
the sponsor of the event. This is a great lineup of Ruby and Rails
content and I think I would be remiss not to mention it. If the Ruby
community is well represented at this conference there is the
possibility of a regional Ruby/Rails conference in the future. I would
really like to see that happen. I think our group could play a
significant role.
