At last year’s RubyConf, Ryan Davis (zenspider) and Jacob Harris organised a RejectConf late one night. Apparently it was a great event that included the famous “Rubyists vs Pythonists” one-man stage show. With many more proposals rejected for RailsConf2007, there’s even more need for a RejectConf.

So, presenting…

Conference proposal get rejected? Got something wicked to show off that didn’t exist when the Call For Proposals were cut off last year? Then you.


You’ve got 5 minutes to demonstrate just how wrong the Conference Organisers were for not giving you the full 50 minutes, and to entertain the rest of us. Mostly I want to be entertained.


No idea yet. Maybe outside on the street. Perhaps in the kitchen at the venue. Hopefully we can muscle a room when we get there.


Friday or Saturday night, after the BoF sessions for that night. The more mysterious and unorganised the better chance we have of organising it.

P.S. I completely stole all this from Dr Nic who’s a dood.
