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.

Breaking News

Just a quick note, the first release candidate of Rails 1.2 is out. Exciting times indeed!

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
