Speaker Proposal

Be different, be unique, be yourself. Inspire us.

Hello, this is Reg Braithwaite, also known to Rubyists as raganwald. You may know me from such conferences as RubyFringe, Stack Overflow Tech Days, CUSEC, and Øredev. I'm passionate about programming and I'll go anywhere to share that passion, like Microsoft Tech Days and True North PHP where I delivered a keynote.

Enough about me. Here's my talk: Succeeding with Ruby in a Post-Rails World.

I propose to talk about working with Ruby in a world where Rails has become a legacy application, where JavaScript, CoffeeScript, Go, and TypeSafe vying to become the new hotnesses, and the patterns we learned writing Rails applications seem dated in a world where programmers are thinking in promises, reactive programming, and big data.

Walking out of my talk, the audience will be re-energized and even more excited about the future of Ruby and their place in the programming world.

p.s. If you are a conference organizer, and you haven't read my Ruby book "Kestrels, Quirky Birds, and Hopeless Egocentricity," please email me and I'l send you a copy.

p.p.s. Here's my recent Øredev keynote:

Do you mean Typesafe or TypeScript?
