Hello! Welcome to the monthly update. During November, our work was supported by Shopify, Zendesk and many others.

ruby central news

In November, we released a new version of the Ruby Central website! This new site replaces the previous rubytogether.org and rubycentral.org sites, providing a single place to read monthly updates and blog posts, manage your newsletter subscription, and sign up as a supporting member.

The previous Ruby Together monthly updates have been brought over, as well as our previous posts about conferences, speakers, and Ruby developers. If you signed up for the newsletter or as a member in the past, the new site will allow you to manage your existing subscription.

This month, Ruby Central's open source work was supported by 32 different companies, including Ruby member Zendesk and Ruby Shield sponsor Shopify. 1 company joined as a new member.

On top of those companies, 1 new developer -- Emanuel H. Farias -- signed up as a member. In total, we were supported by 122 developer members. Thanks to all of our members for making everything that we do possible. <3
