Who We Are
We are ChicagoRuby, a group of Ruby and Ruby on Rails enthusiasts. Our meetings are a place where we share our knowledge and excitement about the language and the framework. Sign up at Meetup.com to get the exact date, time, and location for each meeting.
ChicagoRuby has its roots in two Ruby user groups that merged in July 2009: Chirb and ChicagoRuby. Today, ChicagoRuby has grown to over 4,000 members and has held hundreds of free meetups throughout the Chicagoland area.
Meet our Organizers
In addition to our monthly events, ChicagoRuby produces multiple annual conferences. WindyCityRails, Chicago’s Ruby on Rails conference, started in 2008 to fill what had been a void of Ruby conferences in the midwest. In 2015, ChicagoRuby produced the inaugural WindyCityThings, a conference focused on the Internet of Things (IoT). We’re also currently in the planning stages for RubyCaribe, a Ruby conference with deep-dive lab session in Barbados.
