Call for Proposals (New Format!)

In the last 7 installments of this conference the delivery format was comprised of 2 parallel tracks of talks divided in 2 full days for around 30 talks in total. We have Brazilian and International speakers selected and the audience can experience them all because of real time audio translation from English to Brazilian Portuguese and vice versa. Slots have around 45 minutes each.

Every year, almost half of the audience is composed of people that are attending for the first time. There are lots of beginners from all around the country. It's difficult to select talks that are good for almost 1,000 attendees ranging from beginners all the way to advanced programmers.

Therefore this year we will a whole new dimension to this conference. It will be divided in 2 different layers, and 2 different audiences. The talks will be divided. The traditional tracks will have mostly medium to advanced topics only, for an audience that already has experience in Ruby programming.

Then there will be an open concept floor with smaller, parallel activities and talks for beginners and people wanting more interaction with the speakers and companies from the ecosystem. Read more in the "Open Floor". Attendees will be able to choose access to both floors or just the Open Floor.

Submit your talk proposal as soon as possible You can send multiple topics and choose to support the community in both formats, with a traditional talk or also at the Open Floor. Help us spread the word about the conference. We will keep you updated about the selection process.

We will keep this Call for Proposals open until around May 31st
