Today we "opened the RailsConf Call For Proposals": So we soon begin the several-month process of putting together the program for RailsConf 2010 (in Baltimore!). I'm particularly excited to start the process this year, because we've made a very positive change to the team. We're bringing on "Ben Scofield": as program co-chair this year. In case you don't know Ben, he's the author of "Practical REST on Rails 2 Projects":, "Technology Director at Viget Labs":, organizer of the roving "Developer Day": conferences, and a "fantastic speaker": (he helped created "": too). !! "So please join us": in welcoming Ben, and start working on those RailsConf proposals! See you in Baltimore!
