About RubyConf India

RubyConf India is a global event complementing other RubyConf events across the world.

This year our event is a 2 day, single track event focussed on Ruby Language, Framework and Tools. While we welcome all kinds of talks, we would love to have more talks around Ruby and experience reports around big data with Ruby.

We are lining up speakers from well known international community. Please don't forget to submit your RFP here. RFP closes on 18th Jan 2016.

Note: The conference is entirely in English.
