RubyConf 2022
Houston, TX


Since 2001, RubyConf has been the main annual gathering of Rubyists from around the world. RubyConf is the perfect place for a more focused technical aspect of the Ruby language.

The Why

Our Mission

Focused on fostering the Ruby programming language and the robust community that has sprung up around it, RubyConf brings together Rubyists, both established and new, to discuss emerging ideas, collaborate, and socialize in some of the best locations in the US.

RubyConf strives to provide an inclusive and welcoming experience for all participants. We have an anti-harassment policy that we require ALL attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and staff to comply with — no exceptions. We also collaborate with a diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant. Review our policies for more details.
