MadisonRuby Conference brings Ruby programmers of all ages together under one roof. The conference will be held at the beautiful Overture Center for the Arts in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday, August 24th & Saturday, August 25th to include sessions with inspiring and engaging speakers from near and far, and a full day of hands-on workshops scheduled the day before Thursday, August 23rd at Madison College Downtown Campus.

We are getting a little carried away this year: 5K, Clyde Stubblefield, Friday rooftop party with two bands, Whisky & Cheese pairing, and 20+ sessions including speakers from France, Italy, and The Netherlands

Madison Ruby burst on to the regional conference scene in 2011 drawing speakers and attendees from all over the US as well as Canada, Germany, and The Netherlands. The conference was created by seasoned conference planners Jim & Jen Remsik, as a way to introduce members of the Ruby Community to Madison and showcase the city as a burgeoning hub for technology. While the conference is largely for developers anyone with an interest in technical subjects and web development will feel right at home. The conference has a built-in balance of workshops, presentations and socialization to allow discussion of the new ideas or debating existing ideas and issues.

The conference will also offer attendees a chance to sightsee beautiful Madison to showcase the local assets as one of the best, brainiest, and least expensive places in the US to live and work. And cheese. The venues and layout are set up to take advantage of the walkable downtown area awash in food, drink and entertainment options.

A LITTLE ABOUT MADISON, WISCONSIN
While being one of the least expensive places in the US to live and work, Madison has a lot to offer. It is home to a number of great, award-winning breweries, a few within walking distance of the conference. It's also home to the largest producer-only farmers’ market in the country, just steps away from the conference on the Capitol Square.
