RubyConf India

I am part of a team at ThoughtWorks helping out organizing the very first RubyConf in India. I’m very excited about this. So if you have the possibility to come to Bangalore, the event will be March 20 and 21.

We already have some solid speakers lined up. Chad Fowler will keynote, and so will I, and we have a number of other people coming in. A few of my colleagues from ThoughtWorks, such as Sarah Taraporewalla, Sidu Ponnappa and Aman King. Other speakers include Hemant Kumar, Pradeep Elankumaran, Arun Gupta and others. Finally, Nick Sieger will also come to Bangalore for this event!

So as you can see, this is gearing up to be a great event! Hope to see you there.

    feel really sorry for Ruby, although you guys are putting so much energy in it, it doesn’t seem to take off.

    It’s still sitting around 2% in the tiobe ranking. I think it will never get more following. It had its window of opportunity, that window is closed. you can check any good marketing guru, they will confirm that.

  4. It’s interesting you say that, because we’re having a really hard time keeping up with demand we’re seeing for Ruby. 2% of a multi-trilion dollar market is a multi-billion dollar market. There’s no need to involve a marketing guru to figure this out, unless you want simple entertainment.
