One of the reasons the Ruby and Rails community is so strong and passionate is because of the awesome regional conferences that happen all around the globe on a yearly basis. Previously on this blog I’ve gone through the list and highlighted a bunch, but since then Ruby There has popped up.
So instead of listing out all the conferences I’m just going to send you over to RubyThere.com.
If you dig the Ruby and Rails community I highly recommend you attend one of these events and maybe volunteer to help or even sponsor if you can afford to. It’s hard work putting on a conference, and most of the organizers do it for the love of the community (and little to no compensation).
