The Ruby Hero Award :
The RubyConfIndia Ruby Hero Award gives recognition to influential devs in the Indian Ruby/Rails community and shall announce the winner at RubyConfIndia.
We believe great work deserves recognition. The Indian Ruby/Rails dev community is full of amazing contributors and unsung heroes who are busy producing educational content, developing plugins and gems, contributing to open- source projects, or putting on events to help developers learn and grow.
Wherever they are, their work is too great to go unnoticed and we need your help to find them.
The Indian Ruby/Rails community will propose many such unsung heroes and a select panel will finalize one such hero and announce his/her name at RubyConfIndia 2017.
About us :
RubyConf India is a global event complementing other RubyConf events across the world.
This year our event is a 2 day, single track event focused on Ruby Language, Framework and Tools. While we welcome all kinds of talks, we would love to have more talks around Ruby and experience reports around big data with Ruby.
