In other OSCON news …

I’m glad to see that IT Conversations has finally put up Danny O’Brien’s hilarious, snarky OSCON ‘05 keynote, On Evil. I recommend you follow along with his slides (and no peeking ahead!)

Ruby folk, especiallyeven if you can’t spare 18 minutes to listen to the whole thing, just go for this shorter clip.

(And thanks to IT Conversations for paying attention to Jon Udell and offering an easy clipping service for their audio content.)

OSCON 2006 proposals due soon!

February 13th is the deadline for talk and tutorial proposals for OSCON 2006. That’s just over two weeks away. If you’re doing cool stuff with Ruby, submit a proposal!

’Tis a wonderful gift

… to be easily amused.

(Sure, you get a lot of strange looks, but that just makes things funnier. :-)

Pragmatic Studio: Ajax

On Mondays I typically scan my calendar for the next few weeks to see what’s coming up, and this morning I was reminded that the first Pragmatic Studio for Ajax is coming up in just over three weeks. I’m thrilled that I have the opportunity to be there. I’m one of the “Ajax experts” scheduled to speak at The Ajax Experience in May, but never mind about thatI’ve never failed to learn new things whenever I’ve heard Stu Halloway and Justin Gehtland speak. Besides … I’ve noticed that cool people like Rael Dornfest are planning to be there, and the photos from the first Rails studio show what a fun time these training events are. (I’m seriously disappointed I haven’t been able to make it to a Rails studio.)

Ajax is a funny beast, and you can expect to meet Java, Rails, .NET, and PHP developers thereand that’s just part of the fun, to me. There’s still time to sign up and get good airfare!
