Hello, I'm Andy.
I've run a couple of conferences in the past when I lived in Singapore. People seemed to have a nice time. Now I've moved back to the UK and there's nothing ‘south of the border’ while our Scottish chums run the splendid ScotRuby.
So why not come to lovely, sunny* Brighton in July?
Tickets are £99, the early bird & earlyish bird tickets are gone
The conference will be a single day, single track with a mixture of known ‘name’ speakers and a call for proposal (that is open now). Everyone gets a half hour.
Given the snappy talks there will be plenty of socialising time during the day. There'll also be some sort of after-party, but think more ‘few drinks in the sunshine’ than ‘dark, shouty basement’.
