EuRuKo 2013 Athens
What is Euruko?
EuRuKo is an annual European conference about the Ruby ecosystem, each year organised in a different European city, aiming at bringing together individuals, organisations, companies and the community at large. Participants from all over the world gather for 2 exciting days full of cutting edge technology presentations, best Ruby practices, intriguing techniques and networking. EuRuKo is all about promoting Ruby technology and strengthening the community ties in an individual as well as in a collective level.
Ruby, an exciting, powerful, highly productive and mature programming language used by thousands of programmers and companies, is celebrating its birthday in 2013 and what better way to do it than releasing a brand new version alongside a new version of Rails, its showcase tool. From its humble beginnings in Japan and stepping into the limelight in the later part of the '10s, Ruby manages to successfully run diverse operations and enterprises spanning from very high traffic social networks to research and government entities.
The Greek Ruby community is thrilled to host the 11th EuRuKo in Athens in June 2013 and while this comes with some unique challenges it also presents us with a number of excellent opportunities such as initiating a vital knowledge exchange and communication among professionals from around the world and their Greek peers, fostering the local community and introducing the Ruby way to the Greek academic institutions and wider private sector. Last, but not least, to promote our invaluable language of choice and have fun.
May the Rubee with you!
