Lone Star Ruby Conference in 21 minutes

by gregg on Sep 16, 2008

The Lone Star Ruby Conference was last week, September 4-6 in Austin, Texas. I did my video bit, going around to each speaker and asking them to give me their talk in 30 seconds. This time I teamed up with Confreaks to provide you with direct links to the full videos.

You should see quite a few familiar faces including Yehuda Katz, Jim Weirich, James Edward Gray II, Evan Phoenix, Bruce Williams, and Yukihiro Matsumoto the creator of Ruby.

Production of this video was sponsored by FiveRuns. Check out their TuneUp service to catch performance and scalability problems before your applications go into production and their Manage service to monitor your full production stack.

Looking for a unique way to advertise at an event or conference? Would you consider sponsoring me to do one of these videos? They’re great for the community and to get the word out about your services or product.

This video above is the first time I’ve had a company sponsor one of my conference videos, and as you can see it’s a very unique way to get publicity. I can also work with the Confreaks guys to provide full service video coverage of your entire event. Email me (Gregg@RailsEnvy) if you’re interested.

That was really informative, thanks. I’m now off to watch 4 or five of the presentations. Every conference should have something like this that’s this accessible, both for those (like me) who weren’t able to attend and for those who did attend and either missed some of the talks, or want to brush up or show someone else what a talk was about.

The Confreaks videos are the perfect way to spend a lunch hour. It’s also useful to watch them with interested co-workers.

Great way to catch up, thanks! Also, your link to Manage is wrong, the URL should be lowercase ‘manage’.

Thanks for this video, especially with the links.

This one made it so easy to pick the ones I’m interested in without playing everything. :) Thanks again.
