I’ve firmed up a few speaking gigs for the next couple months. And I wanted to share.
First of all, tomorrow night, September 16th, I’ll be presenting a “casual intro” to every-day Git usage at NH.rb. Brian Turnbull and Scott Garman will also be presenting, on HTTP and Rails deployment stacks, respectively.
If you live in the ME/NH/Northern MA area and are interested in Ruby, I really encourage you to come to these meetings. They’re a great way to meet other local developers and learn about new cutting edge topics. If you can’t make this one, the next one is scheduled for October 21st (they’re always on the third Tuesday of the month). I’m scheduled to speak at that one, too. Topic is currently TBD but I’m sure we’ll come up with something fun.
Meeting other Rubyists and learning about hot new tech isn’t enough of a reward in and of itself? Well, there’s free swag too. This month we’ll be giving away a few copies of my new book, Practical Rails Plugins along with some other Apress goodies (thanks Apress!).
NH.rb is also giving way a free core conference pass to the upcoming Voices That Matter: Professional Ruby Conference (Boston, November 17-20). Pretty great, right? Sounds like this is going to be a great conference and they have a bunch of top notch speakers lined up. I’ll be there too (how was that for a segue?), speaking about Rails Plugin development strategies on the first day of the event. Hope to see you there!
