EuRuKo annual conference 2013 about the Ruby language will take place in Athens 28th - 29th of June.
EuRuKo (the European Ruby Conference) is an annual conference which focuses on the Ruby programming language, with an informal atmosphere and lots of opportunities to listen, to talk, to hack, to have fun and where delegates experience distinct and insightful content from speakers of the highest calibre. EuRuKo is being organised for the past 10 years in cities around Europe by Ruby developers for Ruby developers. It’s a truly volunteer-based event and like Ruby it is fostered by the community. Each year a different european city and its local community of Ruby enthusiasts are tasked to host the event and that’s what makes EuRuKo one of a kind. This summer EuRuKo comes to Athens for two days on the 28th and 29th of June. We can’t wait to see you in Athens this summer!
EuRuKo 2013 has an amazing speaker line up chosen by the community throught the open for all CfP.
Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto is the mastermind behind the inception of Ruby. Since 1993 he has been designing our precious jewel up to its latest 2.0 version. Meanwhile he has been working on mruby, a lightweight Ruby implementation. This summer, he will be celebrating with us the 20th anniversary of Ruby.
Koichi knows the inside outs of the Ruby VM. He has developed YARV (Yet another Ruby VM) which became the official Ruby VM when Ruby 1.9 was released. We believe he will give lots of insights in the Ruby VM, the new performance improments in Ruby 2.0 and will hint at the future of the Ruby VM.
Steve enjoys turning coffee into code, writing, philosophy, and physical activity. He is a contributor to many high visibility open source projects such as Sinatra, Resque, Rubinius and of course the venerable Ruby on Rails web framework. His talks are always insightful and inspiring. We should not expect anything less for EuRuKo.
