Jonan is here to MC this year!

We are excited to announce that Jonan Scheffler (@1337807) will act as Master of Ceremonies during the conference. I think we can all agree that we'd like to see him shock himself on stage one more time.

We will be announcing speakers shortly. Stay tuned!

What's Ruby on Ales?

Ruby on Ales is a two day single track Ruby conference in Oregon. It has all of the requisite makings of a conference—presentations, opportunities to find a new job and network—but let's be honest: Ruby on Ales feels a lot like a reunion of friends and colleagues.

“Ruby on Ales feels a lot like a reunion of friends and colleagues.”

New folks and returning alumni gather each March in cozy Bend, Oregon to reconnect, to learn something new, and to drink some pretty good beer.

We sincerely invite you to make the trek out to Bend this coming March to reunite with your Ruby community. Stay tuned by following us @rbonales.
