About the Event
April 9, 2010
RubyNation is an annual two-day, dual-track technical conference presented by the Washington, DC area Ruby Community. The next RubyNation conference will be held April 9-10, 2010, at the Sheraton Hotel in Reston, VA.
We strive to serve the National Capital Region's Ruby community but in the process we produce a premier Ruby and Rails conference, reaching a large audience of engaged and interested Rubyists and influential thought leaders in the Ruby community well beyond the DC area.
The estimated attendance for the conference is 200 people (170 last year). The conference schedule features presentations from well-known professionals in the Ruby and Rails community, including featured speakers Dave Thomas, Jim Weirich, Joe O’Brien and Greg Pollack. In addition, there will be approximately eighteen other 45-minute technical talks and panel discussions.
In our third year, the RubyNation Conference will again bring the community’s top speakers and leaders together with motivated and excited attendees for an unforgettable conference experience. At RubyNation, we debate and discuss the latest trends, techniques, and tools in Ruby development, design, deployment, business and marketing. We are not a commercial conference. Staffed by committed volunteers, RubyNation is produced and presented by the National Capital Region’s Ruby and Rails Developers Community, as a non-profit event to promote Ruby, and encourage collaboration across the community.
