Ruby Related Conference Announcements
It must be the season for big announcements, because they seem to be flying right now. I'd like to point out two of them from the Ruby community.
InfoQ has announced their QCon, to be held March 12-16 in London. This Ruby-centric conference looks like it will be a big one. Several big names (Joshua Kerievsky, Graeme Rocher, Jeff Sutherland, and more) have already signed up to speak. If you're going to be in London around the Ides of March, this should be a great way to get more involved in the Ruby, AJAX, and Agile communities.
The Rubyists in the Mountain West (the layton.rb, slc.rb, and UtahValley.rb, the boise.rb, and the Boulder-Denver Ruby Group), are working together to put on the first MountainWest RubyConf. This conference will run the same weekend (March 16-17) as QCon, and will be combined with the second Ruby Implementers Summit (see here for information about the first one). There's a call for papers if you're interested in presenting.
I'm excited to see the growth of Regional Ruby Conferences. Hopefully we'll see some great results from the first couple, to build even more momentum in the Ruby community.
Just a quick note, the first release candidate of Rails 1.2 is out. Exciting times indeed!

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
