Want To Speak At RailsConf 2010? Submit Your Proposals Now

In Events, News

railsconf-logo.pngWant to impress your fellow Rails developers? Want to get a free pass to the world's definitive Rails conference to see great keynote speakers of the caliber of Tim Ferriss? Submit a proposal to speak at RailsConf 2010 - taking place June 7-10, 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Yep, the call for participation opened today!

Speaking at RailsConf is a great addition to your CV and a lot of RailsConf's speakers have been first timers. From what I've seen over the years, there doesn't seem to be a pattern to who gets in and who doesn't (though bigger names do, certainly, seem to pop up more - but perhaps they submit the most proposals..) and as long as you can come up with a solid Rails-related talk proposal, you're in with a good chance.

The official call for proposals outlines some areas that would be preferred:

  • Time-saving developer productivity tips, tricks, and tools
  • Patterns and best practices for developing maintainable Rails applications
  • Rails Internals
  • Complex domain modeling
  • Rails development case studies, including application rewrites and organizational bootstrapping
  • Making Rails
  • Heterogeneous systems integration
  • Real-world deployment and scaling
  • Making the most out of new Rails features
  • Gem and Plugin highlights
  • Extending Rails

Proposals are due by 11:59pm Eastern on March 17, 2010 and successful speakers will be notified in April. Good luck!
