Ruby/JS Conference in Dublin this August --- SpreeConf

Posted by Jos on 05 July 2012.

You might remember Brian Quinn from the March 2011 meet-up when he spoke about Spree Commerce, an open source e-commerce platform written in Rails. Since then Spree has become one of the most popular open source projects on GitHub. The Spree team is now hosting a developer’s conference in Dublin, August 22nd and 23rd.

The conference is designed to appeal to general programmers with talks on JavaScript, Backbone, Rails, and other e-commerce topics. This is also an opportunity to see some big name speakers including:

  • **Yehuda Katz ** - Ruby on Rails and jQuery core team member

  • **Gregg Pollack ** - From Ruby5 podcast and Code School

  • **Ryan Bigg ** - Author of “Rails 3 in Action”


SpreeConf will be held in the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin 8. The conference hotel is conveniently located in the city center. Lunch is included both days and there is free transportation between the hotel and the conference kindly sponsored by Klarna. There will also be a happy hour August 22nd hosted by Git Hub and a conference after party August 23rd at O’Donoghue’s Pub.
