Since 2006, RailsConf has been the largest gathering of Rails developers in the world (and for most of that time, it's been the largest gathering of Rubyists, as well). The 2013 edition is again presented by Ruby Central, and will run from April 29th - May 2nd in Portland, OR.
Every year, RailsConf draws world-class developers and companies together to see the state of the art in Rails and web development, to learn about new products and tools, and for good, old-fashioned networking. If you're looking to recruit or be recruited, stay on top of your game or learn the basics, building a team or showing what your team has built, RailsConf is the place to be.
One of our main goals for RailsConf is to provide an inclusive, welcoming experience for everyone. To that end, we have adopted an anti-harassment policy and are requiring all attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and staff to comply with it.
