Brighton Ruby Conference 2015: This is the Brighton Dome rendered Ruby-ish by my own fair hand.

Hello, I'm Andy.

Last year we basked in tropical weather and had a lovely time. And clearly I don't know when to quit.

So why not come to lovely, sunny* Brighton on Monday July 20th? We can do it all again.

* sun not guaranteed, obviously

& you?

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.

Do it now. Submissions close end of April.


If you're interested please get in touch.

Tickets are £100. Contact me for student pricing.

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’.

What is Brighton Like?

Well I think it's like this.
