Athens Digital Week 2009An annual event organized by the city of Athens in it's second year of existence. This year, alongside some giant names in Open Source (Mozilla labs, Android, Fedora, Gentoo, Debian, Wikipedia Greece, OpenSolaris, OpenERP, et al) our local ruby community will have a chance to present the language and the frameworks to a wider audience of "techies", programmers or not :)
We will be there on Thursday from 16:00 to 18:00 with this topic list so far:
- From PHP to Ruby On Rails [ Jim Myhreberg ]
- A blink into the Rails magic [ me ]
- Ruby on Rails and Web on Python [ Jon Romero ]
OpenCoffee Athens (XXVI)Right after the presentations at the DigitalWeek we are off to Benaki Museum for the 26th Athenian OpenCoffee meeting for three talks from successful tech start-ups in Greece.
