Call for Proposals: Deccan Ruby Conference July 2014

The Deccan Ruby Conference, the first of its name, will be held in Pune on 19 July 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Pune.

The call for talk proposals is now open, and will remain open until 5th June.

Submitting a talk proposal is the first step towards making this conference a big success, and in general making Pune’s active tech scene even more awesome.

About the Conference

Ruby is fun and this is our idea of having fun while organising a conference. A one-day, single-track conference that starts early and ends late! The conference boasts of workshops and talks for both beginners and experts, a lavish party at a local brewery and a potential Futsal tournament among conference attendees! (After all the World Cup finals would have been just a week earlier). For people staying on till Sunday, we plan to organise a trip to Sinhagad (a fort near Pune that has some pristine scenery and a rich history that will leave you speechless). A good easy 1 hour trek for those who want more than just some football.

“Hou De Shikshan” (Let there be education)
