We go into what Ruby (est 1993) is and how it fits into the dev world as Mike and Merrin also geek out on a few languages they learnt back in the day.

Kiwi Ruby ( is a mixture of local and international speakers, a day of workshops and one single-track day of talks. The will cover topics that interest, excite, and delight Ruby-ists and the Ruby-curious of all levels.

It's being held on Thursday 2 November (workshops) and Friday 3 November (conference) at Te Papa on the Wellington waterfront.
