I love the idea of charity workshops before conferences. It gives the presenters an opportunity to meet folks, and attendees to get some quality instruction with world-class instructors. And best of all, all the proceeds to go charity.
I'll be giving a one-day Ruby workshop on June 28 in Edinburgh, just before the Scottish Ruby Conference. You don't have to be going to the conference to attend. The suggested donation is £75, but of course you're free to donate more :)
What will we cover? Well, you'll already know Ruby, and you'll want to be digging deeper into the stuff that makes it tick. We'll look at the object model and metaprogramming, and maybe domain specific languages. We'll probably look at some libraries, and reflection, and...
Why so vague? Because for this kind of event, I'd like to make it revelant to the people who attend. I have a boatload of material, and we'll select what we look at on the day.
So, if you're in the area on Thursday, June 28, why not register? I'd lov to see you there.
