RubyConf 2008 proposal accepted
After being shot down for all my proposals at the various regional Ruby conferences (MountainWest, Lone Star, Ruby Hoedown), one of my proposals was accepted for the big tamale, RubyConf! The talk is entitled Monkeybars: easy cross platform GUIs. To my knowledge this will be the first JRuby related project to be featured at RubyConf (or any other Ruby conference for that matter) so we’ll have to see how the J-phobia plays out. I’m actually still pretty surprised my talk was selected, I guess super awesome GUI development is too good to pass up, even if it’s got some Java mixed in there.
