9th Rubyconf Brasil

Rubyconf Brasil has established itself as the largest Ruby conference in Latin America. It's going on every year since 2008 and now we come to the 9th consecutive edition of one of the most successful tech conferences in Latin America. In 2015 we had more than 1,100 attendees plus thousands of unique visitors to the recorded talks.

Speakers from all over the world collaborated to make it happen. We already had well known speakers such as Chad Fowler, David Black, Jim Weirich, Scott Chacon, Chris Wanstrath, Josh Kalderimis, Koichi Sasada, Charles Nutter, and dozens of others. This is your chance to showcase your expertise.

Rubyconf Brasil already has a venue, at FECOMERCIO (São Paulo, Brazil) and the dates are confirmed for September, 23th and 24th so book your flight and hotel right away!

Call for Proposals (New Format!)

Since 2015 Rubyconf Brasil changed gears drastically, offering a radical New Format. We kept the traditional 2 parallel tracks of talks, divided between 2 full days of around 30 talks in total. We had both Brazilian and International speakers presenting in slots of 45 minutes each.

The New Format added a second floor, the "OPEN FLOOR", with 3 additional parallel tracks, with themes other than Ruby, to further state that the Ruby community is fast to adopt cutting-edge technology in different platforms, be it Elixir, Go, Clojure and many more!

Not only that, the OPEN FLOOR was also implemented as an OPEN SPACE, with no physical separation between tracks, where each attendee had a wireless audio device where he could change channels to listen to the different tracks. It was flawless and it merges perfectly with the well behaved Ruby Community in Brazil, which kept a huge Open Space very quiet and civilized through out the conference days.

The Open Floor tracks were all sponsored by great companies that supports the Ruby Community in Brazil and we will do it again this year. So if your company wants to support Rubyconf Brazil let us know as soon as possible as the tracks reservations were filled very quickly last year.

Submit your talk proposal using the form below. You can send multiple topics and choose to support the community in both formats, with a traditional advanced Ruby talk or also at the Open Floor with new technologies such as Docker, Elixir, Go and more. Help us spread the word about the conference. We will keep you updated about the selection process.

We will keep this Call for Proposals open until around May 31st
