Supporting the Ruby Community Since 2001

Applications Now Open to Join the Board of Ruby Central!

Ruby Central is a non-profit organization dedicated to support and advocacy of the worldwide Ruby community.

We produce the annual RubyConf and RailsConf conferences, support community growth, and provide vital infrastructure for the Ruby programming language by maintaining the bundler and rubygems packaging services in addition to other open source projects.

The board of directors for Ruby Central act as representatives to the community and work to ensure smooth operations today and smart strategy for tomorrow. We meet once a month and all take turns working as co-chairs of the conferences.

To support our conferences and programs, we're looking to fill multiple board seats! We'd love to have you come join our small but dedicated team of volunteers.

We think about big questions like:

As a board member you will play a pivotal role in helping build the future of Rubyists everywhere. You’ll have the chance to help shape the experience at the world’s largest Ruby conference, introduce us to the next generation of Ruby/RailsConf speakers, guide our open source infrastructure work, and work on exciting new projects which support the community year-round.
