Ruby Conferences is a simple list of Ruby conferences, published collaboratively with the Ruby community. Filtered event news is available in the feed and @rubyconferences.

Eligible Conferences

Focus is a goal of this project and as a result, only conferences that are specifically for Ruby are listed. That means that if a conference covers Ruby, but is not specifically for Rubyists, then it is left out.

A good rule of thumb for whether a conference should be included is if its name includes either Ruby or Rails and how it describes itself. A conference that describes itself as a "Conference on Web Development" might be an awesome event, but it's probably not a Ruby conference.

Filtered Event News

In an effort to keep the news focused, only the following items are covered:

  • Dates announced
  • Call for Proposal life cycle
  • Registration life cycle
  • Conference videos posted

A brand new event would also be covered by a news item.

Life Cycle News

Both an event's call for proposals and registration are life cycle news - they have an announcement and a deadline. This type of news is covered by the following items:

  • An announcement
  • A reminder a week before the deadline
  • A reminder the day before the deadline


The list of events is driven by the two files in the data folder - if you have an update for those things, just change the JSON and send a PR.

If you have news, please follow the conventions you see in the source/news/posts folder including filename and title. No biggie if you're not sure - this can be tweaked easily enough.
