Save the Date: Africa Ruby Community Conference 2024

Mark your calendars for July 26-27, 2024, as the highly anticipated African Ruby Community Conference returns! Bigger and bolder than ever, this event promises to be a game-changer for developers of all levels. Imagine joining hundreds of passionate coders and veterans eager to share their wisdom, dreamy – right?

But first, who are we? The African Ruby Community is a vibrant collective born in 2010 with a mission to connect and empower over 5,000 passionate individuals across East Africa. Our diverse community includes developers, entrepreneurs, designers, and freelancers, all united by a common flame: Ruby, the versatile open-source language adored by startups for its rapid prototyping and proof-of-concept capabilities.

Our journey began with a simple belief – that collaboration breeds innovation. Every week, we gather in cities across East Africa, fostering knowledge exchange and building lasting connections through meetups and workshops. But our impact extends beyond mere gatherings. Our annual Ruby Conference tackles relevant industry themes, bridging the gap between academic knowledge and real-world application. We envision a future where technology empowers, not just individuals, but entire communities.

Here’s why attending this years conference could be your launchpad to coding success:

Learn from the Best: Francis Ndiritu is a seasoned developer and the driving force behind ARC’s successful attachment program, is just one of the many renowned speakers gracing the stage. Dive into insightful talks covering cutting-edge topics, practical workshops designed to elevate your skills, and electrifying sessions that will push your coding boundaries and ignite your creativity.

At our recent meetup, held on Thursday, February 15, 2024, the spotlight was on introducing the African Ruby Community attachment program, spearheaded by Francis, to our community members. This program is designed with a clear objective: to familiarize individuals with the Ruby programming language, introduce them to Ruby on Rails, and guide them toward becoming proficient Ruby on Rails web developers.

Witness Growth in Action: Linah Muhonja, an ARC attachee wowed everyone with her bookstore API built from scratch! At the conference, she honed her Ruby on Rails expertise. Her understanding of the topic was top-notch as she implemented a complete CRUD API, went further to create seed data, and even tested the API using Postman! Her understanding of the topic was impressive. Just like Linah, countless participants from past conferences have leveraged the event’s immersive learning environment to propel their careers.

Network with Brilliant Minds: Picture yourself mingling with tech wizards like Linah and Francis, exchanging ideas, forging connections, and discovering a world of possibilities within the vibrant Ruby community. Whether you’re a seasoned developer scaling new heights or a beginner embarking on your ascent, the conference fosters a collaborative spirit where everyone learns and grows together.
