EuRuKo 2017 in Budapest

Last weekend, I attended EuRuKo 2017 in Budapest. It was great to see a lot of familiar faces after skipping last year.

700 Ruby developers (and others) flocked to Budapest Full house Full house on either side

in order to conference hard for two days, see 14 talks, almost as many lightning talks, chat, and party.

There have been many tweets from the conference and people have written about their experiences there. I’d just like to point out few high points.

Matz talked about Ruby3x3 initiative in more detail than ever. Matz

I was pleasantly surprised by the number of women attending; I’d say around 10% by my guess. It’s far from parity but still a noticeable improvement. There were several talks about distributed systems and how to make them behave properly, about offloading analytical tasks to a data warehouse through ETL, Charles Nutter updated everyone on the state of JRuby etc. Softer topics of working as and with a junior developer and general empathy were covered as well. Bozhidar Batsov closed a nice dream of streamlined and improved Ruby 4.0 and then killed it. We conferenced hard. Hard conferencing

And because we deal in energies, there’s an obligatory photo of a LEED certified building. LEED
