Hey Ruby, what's next?

Stop burying Ruby and look around!

1-2 of June, Saint Petersburg

Rails have been pushing the concept of “set up a blog in 15 minutes” for the last 15 years. It has been equipping programmers with modern tech stack, providing users with decent interface, and offering business owners a quick launch.

Meanwhile, Hanami and Dry-rb are actively incorporating a bunch of modern paradigms into Ruby, such as Inversion of Control, Dependency Injections, and Containers. The community is also experimenting with DDD, CQRS, Event Sourcing, and Evented store.

Come listen to talks and communicate with people who move Ruby forward!
