CFP is open now, I'm looking for a mix of a couple of half-hour, several twenty minute and a handful of five minute 'lightning' talks.
If you think your talk might work for multiple timings... pick the lower one, trust me it'll be better, faster and more 'on point'. If you've never spoken before, pick a shorter time, but I absolutely want to hear from you. A variety of voices is what I'm after.
If you're interested please get in touch.
The conference will be a single day, single track with a mixture of known ‘name’ speakers and a call for proposal (open now). Everyone gets a half hour, but I might mix it up a bit and throw in some lightning talks.
Given the snappy talks there will be plenty of socialising time during the day. There'll also be some sort of after-party, but think more ‘few drinks in the sunshine’ than ‘dark, shouty basement’.
Well I think it's like this.
Brighton Ruby Conference is a harassment-free experience for everyone. With that in mind we have a brief code of conduct. It's not draconian, we merely want everyone to enjoy themselves and be considerate of everyone else. Matz is nice, so we are nice.
