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.
The list of events is driven by the two files in the
_data directory - if you
have an update for those things, just change the YAML and send a PR.
Here is a list of the keys that can be used:
name: The official name of the event
location: When the event is in the US, this would be "City, State", for any other country, use "City, Country".
dates: The dates for the event - use "Month Day, Year" format with multi-day events looking like "1-2".
url: The url for the event.
Extra keys for the upcoming list:
reg_phrase: Typically you want to put "Registration open" here.
reg_date: If there is a registration deadline, enter that here.
cfp_phrase: Typically you want to put "CFP open" here.
cfp_date: If there is a cfp deadline, enter that here.
Extra keys for the past list:
video_link: A url to the videos for the event.
We build the site with Jekyll.
Install Ruby, then:
