More newbies at RubyConf AU

Last night we held our first Development Hub for 2014. More than 60 new developers and professional mentors came along to get hacking and coding.

We did things a little differently last night. To kick off the evening we held our RubyConf AU ticket competition. Seven brave new developers stood up in front of the crowd to tell us about their Ruby and Rails journey, what they’ve learned, why they are learning and how they are involved in the community. It was super inspiring to hear each of their different stories and how far they have come.

After Mikel’s thorough judging process, we were delighted to present all seven entrants with a ticket to this year’s RubyConf!

Congratulations to our winners: Angie Gove, Bradly Swart, Catherine Elizabeth Jones, Dave Wood, Lance Cohen, Marco Lavielle and Nick Morgan! We’re truly excited to give you this opportunity!

You can check out their smiling faces on our Facebook gallery.

We started Development Hub because of the huge demand for help and support following on from our InstallFest initative. It is a free monthly event that we hold in Sydney where new developers, or anyone working on anything Ruby and Rails related can come along and meet some awesome people who are also working with Ruby and Rails.

We are lucky enough here in Sydney to have an awesome bunch of professional Ruby and Rails developers come along to give their time and help and share their passion with others in the community. It is through these events that we have now introduced 270 participants to Ruby and Rails.
