Frequently Asked Questions
1. When does the conference start on the 17th? When does it end on the 19th?
We anticipate conference programming starting at 11am Central Time (CT) on Nov 17-19 and ending around 4:30pm CT each day, with some optional social events happening afterwards.
2. How do I know if I should purchase the Individual or Corporate ticket?
The Individual ticket (less than half of the cost of an in-person RubyConf ticket) is for those attendees who are purchasing their own ticket to RubyConf. The Corporate ticket is for conference attendees whose employer is purchasing their conference tickets. Attendees are free to choose which ticket they ultimately purchase; we operate on the honor system.
Please note that, as a nonprofit organization, all ticket sales for our conference go towards Ruby Central's mission of supporting the Ruby community.
3. Are there conference scholarships available?
Yes, we have a limited number of Opportunity Scholarships each conference. This year's scholarships have already been awarded -- congratulations to our Scholars!
4. Do you need conference volunteers?
After close examination of our conference needs, we've determined we will not need any additional volunteer help for RubyConf 2020. Thank you to those who have reached out seeking to help -- we are so grateful for our community!
5. Does RubyConf have a jobs fair or list?
Yes, we will be conducting a virtual job fair on the second day of RubyConf 2020 and will also be featuring an official jobs list.
