Today we announced that Jim Weirich will be a keynote speaker at
MountainWest RubyConf.  We are really excited to have Jim as a Keynote
speaker.  He will be giving a keynote titled "Shaving with Ockham"

As developers, we deal with complexity every day. Our programs are millions
of lines long, consisting of thousands of subroutines and hundreds of
modules. And the smallest mistake in any one of these items can potentially
bring a system to its knees.

Some problems are inherently complex. But that doesn't mean that our
solutions must also be complex. Finding the simple in the midst of
complexity is the key to building systems that can solve today's problems.

Jim Weirich is the Chief Scientist for EdgeCase LLC, a Rails development
firm located in Columbus Ohio. Jim has over twenty-five years of experience
in software development. He has worked with real-time data systems for
testing jet engines, networking software for information systems, and image
processing software for the financial industry. Jim is active in the Ruby
community and has contributed to several Ruby projects, including the Rake
build system and the RubyGems package software.
