RubyConf 2020

RubyConf is the world’s largest and longest-running gathering of Ruby enthusiasts, practitioners, and companies.

2020 was entirely virtual. In addition to the fresh Ruby content that is always a hallmark of the conference, we featured opportunities to interact with Speakers and other conference attendees in real time through Q&As, virtual hangs, and an interactive hallway track not available at any other time, all from the comfort of attendees' own .env. We're sad that it's over, but are already planning on when we will all next see (or "see") our Ruby Friends!

Why RubyConf?

The oldest and most authentic Ruby conference in the world… I love the community; I’m proud of being part of it.

20 Nadia Odunayo

A lot of these people, you’ve been reading their blog posts over the years or watching their talks and now you get to meet them!

30 Dana Weiss

The Ruby community is one big beating heart and I’m excited to be a part of it!

40 Justin Searls

We have a common set of values, a common set of interests, and just a curiosity and a playfulness that you don’t see in other language ecosystems.

50 Chrissy Hunt

Amazing first day at RubyConf! I thought I was here to learn about code, but this whole day has been a lesson in the power of community and coordinated action to create change in/with tech.

60 Nina Kaufman

I feel like being able to meet and learn from folks in the Ruby community is essential to what makes RubyConf so great.
