In the spring of 1974 in his home town of Budapest, Hungary, Ernö Rubik invented the Magic Cube. It was renamed the Rubik’s Cube by the Ideal Toy Corporation in 1980. More than just a toy, Rubik cubes has inspired everything from art and culture to particle physics.
We believe that not only the name of our conference RubyC match with the name of world’s the most popular toy, but also the desire that drive people around the world to do puzzles elegantly and quickly match with passion of Ruby on Rails developers to resolve tasks of web-programming.
This year RubyC conference will gather true Ruby Heroes.
Four of six 2011 Ruby Heroes and one 2009 Ruby Hero will arrive to Kyiv. Ruby Heroes was created to show gratitude and give these people the recognition they deserve.
They create educational content, develop plugins & gems, contribute to open source projects, and put on events which help educate and make our lives as developers easier.
The part of the RubyC’s mission is to create of our own Ruby Heroes, so we invite all Ruby developers who have what to say community to send their proposals to speak. Here at RubyC we will test new presentation format – “2 star minutes”, during which everyone who wants will be able to represent his idea or project and find followers.
