Your safety is our top priority

We follow CDC safety guidelines and require all attendees to as well. Your help ensures a safe, secure, and enjoyable RubyConf for all.

International attendees

The U.S. border is closed to most outside travelers. We’ll stay up to date on the entry status and advise non-US attendees as the situation develops.

While safety guidelines are subject to change based on regulations at the local, state, and federal levels, we still ask that in-person attendees exercise caution and follow public health best practices that will ensure the safety of our Ruby community. Our Covid policies will continue to be updated as the conference approaches.

Why RubyConf?

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.
