RubyKaigi 2008 is currently accepting proposals for Lightning Talks. We're looking for talks on a wide range of topics, from demos of Ruby applications, to your opinions about Ruby itself, and so forth. Please apply if you're interested!
We plan to run a standard battery of 11 talks, each of strictly 5 minutes duration, in a solid 1 hour session. This session will be held in the afternoon of Day 1 (Saturday, June 21) of the conference as part of the main sessions in the Main Hall.
Presentations will be selected from the proposals by the RubyKaigi 2008 Executive Committee.
Please be aware that Lightning Talk speakers will need tickets to attend the conference. If you are selected as an LT speaker, but were unable to purchase a ticket in advance, the committee shall make arrangements for you to purchase a ticket.
