It's been a while.... we thought we might shake the dust off this blog and give everyone a bit of an update.
First off the bat, our brand spanking new website is online! It's still a work in progress but most of the important information is up already. Please let us know if you find any issues or have some suggestions for improvements. We'll be adding new content over the coming weeks leading up to Ruxcon. Big thanks goes out to Tim and Matt for making this happen.
You can now register for Ruxcon and book your ticket via our online registration system. Don't worry, we do not collect any of your credit card information - you will be transferred to PayPal to carry out the financial transaction. PayPal does not require you to sign up for an account, you just need a visa or mastercard. Please register via http://www.ruxcon.org.au/register.
We're getting very close to finalising the 2010 speaker lineup. There are still a few more talks to come and we're looking at a jam-packed dual track schedule for both Saturday and Sunday. We have quite a few guest speakers based overseas making the big trip out to Australia this year. Please check out the presentation list at http://www.ruxcon.org.au/presentations for more information.
Also new for Ruxcon 2010, we have some really good training courses on offer. They will run (depending on bookings) on Thursday the 18th and Friday the 19th of November (just before the main conference). Please check them out at: http://www.ruxcon.org.au/training.
Finally, there will be no Ruxmon Meeting this month, we're just too busy to organise anything at the moment. We might have a social meetup at the end of the month depending on how things go. Some good news on the Sydney front, it looks like the Sydney based Ruxmon meetings will start up just after Ruxcon 2010. We hope they prove to be as successful as the Melbourne meetings.
