What’s eurucamp?

Much like you, we’ve noticed a huge amount of interest in EuRuKo this year and a lot of people (including the organisers of eurucamp) weren't able to get tickets. So we've assembled an alternative programme for those who want to come to Berlin and hear about, talk about and hack about (with) Ruby.

Whoever told you you can't have it both ways was wrong. Our goal is to bring together the best of both worlds, and as such we're combining two different formats for eurucamp.

Saturday 28th May – alternative conference

Saturday will feature a more traditional conference format. Talks will be decided in advance. There will be 9 slots of 45 minutes available.

Sunday 29th May – 100% open space

On Sunday everything will be decided on the day itself. In principle we suggest lightning talks of about 15 minutes, plus workshops.

Reach for the alka-seltzer. Provided you can get yourself along for 10am, you'll have a chance to shape the day yourself and bring your own ideas.
