Matz will come to OSCON 2005
Translated from matz blog, 2005-02-12:
O’Reilly Open Source Convention will be held on August 1-5, 2005 – Oregon Convention Center Portland, Oregon. There is a Ruby track in this year (it was held in year before last but not in last year). Because the due date for proposals I was commissioned by RubyCentral’s friends is Midnight (PST) February 13, 2005, I submitted it in a mad rush.
The theme is “Yield to the Block: the Power of Blocks in Ruby”. I will talk about the various uses of Ruby’s Block. I’m worry about that I could hold out. In Japanese, I am confident about doing it, but not in English.
I am supposed receive a result March 7, 2005. In case that the acceptance comes, I’ll go, but I must make shift the travel fees. Because I want to go Ruby Conference in Fall, I must find a sponsor. It made things easier in last year, because I didn’t go overseas.
If anyone be able to entry as presenters, he has free registration instead of a little expensive registration. If you do it at all, I advise you to try it because you have nothing to lose and it’s said that there’s little competition for the Ruby track.
