Ruby Heroes Award Ceremony
Location: Ballroom A-B Level:
There are many people in the Ruby/Rails world who contribute to our community and rarely receive any recognition or payment for their work. They write educational blogs & tutorials, create plugins & gems, contribute to open source projects, and even put on events which help educate and make our lives as developers easier. Ruby Heroes was created to show some gratitude and give these people the recognition they deserve. Hopefully the type of recognition that keeps them doing what they’re doing, and continuing to make our community stronger.
At the award ceremony we’ll be handing out several trophies to people we believe to be Ruby Heroes, and giving them the round of applause they deserve and might not get otherwise. Come show your gratitude.
