I’ll be speaking at the NovaRUG group on “Rails Security” on Thursday, September 22nd. Networking starts at 6:30 PM, with talks beginning at 7:00 PM. Be there! The other talks will be on reek (the static code analysis tool) and JRuby.
Oracle is in the process of acquiring Sun, where three core team members of the JRuby development team work. Charles Nutter and company have jumped ship to join EngineYard, a prominent hosting company and a major supporter of the Ruby community. In fact, they’re one of the sponsors of our local RubyNation Conference. There’s more information about this on Slashdot.org.
I’m a member of a NovaRUG committee that’s organizing a regional Ruby conference for the Northern Virginia area, to be held sometime in June 2008. I’ll post more news about this event as it becomes available. I’m also tentatively planning to speak at the event, probably on a topic related to JRuby.
