Ruby Central is a non-profit organization dedicated to Ruby support and advocacy of the worldwide Ruby community.
We organize the annual RubyConf and RailsConf software conferences, support community growth, and provide vital infrastructure for the Ruby programming language.
RubyGems is the code-packaging system for the Ruby community. Started as a project in 2004 by the directors of Ruby Central and friends, RubyGems has grown into an invaluable and wide-ranging resource for the sharing of code among all members of the community. With hosting support by Ruby Central, more information can be found at rubygems.org.
Here at Ruby Central, we’re incredibly appreciative of our community, which is dedicated to maintaining an open, welcoming, and supportive environment for all Rubyists. As such, we’re always excited to hear about new Ruby-related projects and regional conferences.
In some instances, we are able to provide resources, grants, or other forms of assistance. If you have a project or conference that you think we should know about, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Launching a new event (conferences, user groups, etc.) benefiting the Ruby community? We may be able to provide guidance and/or support. Learn more about grants.
