(for a HTML version of this message: <http://fosdem-ruby.github.io/cfp.html>)

We're very excited to announce the call for participation for the Ruby devroom
for FOSDEM 2015!

INTRO
-----

The goal of the Ruby devroom is to host technical content focused around the
Ruby language and the numerous open source projects and initiatives which
implement, extend and instrument the Ruby language.

The time format for presentations in the Ruby devroom is not set in stone, but
the ideal duration is around 35-45 minutes with Q&A included.

We are open to suggestions for panels and/or more open, moderated, discussions
provided the topics proposed fit with the theme of the room.

More details about the room can/will be found here: http://fosdem-ruby.github.io/

TALKS/TOPICS WE'D LIKE TO SEE
-----------------------------

Some suggestions on the kinds of topics we would like to see discussed in the Ruby devroom:

* The current state of the Ruby language itself
* Presentations on the techniques employed by various Ruby virtual machines and
  interpreters, along with the effectiveness and/or trade-offs of implementing
  those techniques
* Upcoming Ruby language features, and the implementation challenges and/or
  user benefits that they provide
* Tools and practices used to certify Ruby language conformity and evaluate its
  performance
