The conference will be a single day, single track with a mixture of known ‘name’ speakers and a call for proposal (that is open now). Everyone gets a half hour.
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.
