There's going to be a great Ruby conference in Toronto this summer: RubyFringe. Actually, maybe it's not a Ruby conference, it's "an avant- garde conference for developers that are excited about emerging technologies outside of the Ruby on Rails monoculture".
RubyFringe is a single-track indie conference with no paid technical sponsors and a target attendance of 150.
It will run for two days (plus an opening night), with roughly 10 speakers or panels each day.
There's a kick-ass list of speakers, including out-of-towners like Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Zed Shaw (now's your chance to fight him! ;-), Obie Fernandez, and local Torontonians like Reg Braithwaite and Leila Boujnane.
Registration opens tomorrow.
See you there!
