We would really like to see a talk on Rubinius at Red Dirt RubyConf
this year in our Ruby Implementations track. If anyone is interested
in proposing a talk, our CFP is now open.

We are really pleased to announce the second annual Red Dirt
RubyConf to be help April 21st and 22nd, 2010 in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma. Come check it out at:

We are also very happy to announce that Aaron Patterson of AT&T
Interactive and Dr. Nic Williams of EngineYard will participate as
keynote speakers.

We are actively seeking conference presentation proposals in one of
four conference themes:

RUBY IMPLEMENTATIONS - There is more than one Ruby. This theme will
focus on alternative implementations such as JRuby, Rubinius and

RAILS EXTENSIONS - The power of Rails is in its add ons. This theme
will focus on projects that build on to and extend Rail's core

JAVASCRIPT - There is power in diversity. This theme will focus on the
Ruby/Javascript interface such as JQuery, Coffeescript, Node.js, and

CLOUD SERVICES - Scalable applications have never been easier. This
theme will focus on hosting services such as VPS, EC2, S3, AppCloud,
and Heroku.

The Call for Proposals is now available online. Please submit
your great ideas for talks here:

Proposals will be voted on by the public and the most voted proposal
presentation will win a conference pass, a training pass and three
nights stay at the conference hotel. Propose a presentation now for
