CFP closed on:

The Ruby devroom at FOSDEM is a focused developer room around the Ruby programming language and the open source projects which implement it. While the Ruby community does have a number of regional conferences devoted to its use, opportunities for those interested in the “how it works” of Ruby interpreters and virtual machines are practically non-existent. The goal of this developer room is to discuss:

  • The current state of the Ruby language
  • Techniques employed by various VMs and their effectiveness
  • Upcoming Ruby language features, and the challenges/benefits that they provide
  • Tools and practices used to certify Ruby language conformity and performance
  • Costs and Opportunities provided by the multitude of implementations

CFP Description

Some suggestions on the kinds of topics we would like to see discussed in the Ruby devroom:

  • The current state of the Ruby language itself
  • Presentations on the techniques employed by various Ruby virtual machines and interpreters, along with the effectiveness and/or trade-offs of implementing those techniques
  • Upcoming Ruby language features, and the implementation challenges and/or user benefits that they provide
  • Tools and practices used to certify Ruby language conformity and evaluate its performance
  • Costs and Opportunities provided by the multitude of implementations
  • Ways to extend the language (natively or not)

The proposal can also be submitted following the steps listed here
