You have to visit at least one Ruby conference in USA! Check this summary
At the beginning of this year (2013) I decided that I have to participate in at least one international Ruby conference. I already participated in Development conferences in Europe and even did several talks. But I have never been in USA Ruby conference yet.
Pittsburgh is a very nice city with amazing Ruby community. They have a pub inside a church (The Church Brew Works)
and Pittsburgh Sandwich with French fries
But let’s go back to the Ruby. Did you know that Steve Klabnik lived in Pittsburgh till last year?
I really like the “community feel” of this event. The organizers did amazing job! It’s all done by local volunteers with help of sponsors.
I was introduced to other at the beginning of first day, when the conference moderator asked, who did more than 10,000 miles to arrive to that event.
I had an interesting talk with founder of Gittip Chad Whitacre. He founded amazing product to support Open Source community.
I also invited Avdi Grimm to come to Israel and give a talk in one of our events.
More conference pictures and other info can be found here.
You can find the confernece videos here. But I would like to advise you to check at least those talks:
