Ruby Fun Day: A barcamp for Ruby developers – 21 Feb

What: Ruby Fun Day, an unconference style get-together for all those interested in Ruby
When: Saturday, 21st Feb, 10:30am-4:30pm
Where: Thoughtworks, GF-01, Tower C, Panchshil Tech Park, Yerwada, Pune
Registration and Fees: This event is free for all. Register here.


If you don’t know what Ruby is and why it is cool, see today’s PuneTech article: Why you need to learn Ruby and Rails.

The second edition of Ruby Fun Day will happen on Saturday, Feb 21 at Thoughtworks, Pune. The first edition which happened in Impetus Technologies, Noida was a great success.

Ruby is a very powerful OOP language, while at the same time fairly intuitive and easy to learn and understand. Rails is an MVC web framework where models, views, and controllers are fully integrated in a seamless fashion for the Ruby programming language. At the end of the day, Rails is all about helping you stay productive and happy while building awesome web applications.

Ruby Fun Day is an unconference like Barcamp – a sort of on the fly, day long get together for ruby geeks to talk about geeky stuff and hang out. RubyFunDay 2 is going to be a pure Code Burning session. Every session would be full of live code demonstrations.

If you are based in Pune (or on a short trip to this city) and excited about Ruby or Ruby on Rails, this is a not-to-be-missed event! For more details visit the official event page at

If you would like to present a session at this event, visit the event wiki at . The only constraint we have is, it should not be mere presentation, you will have to show the live code in the session.

  1. Is this useful for absolute beginners? Say someone from C++ background who now wants to develop web apps using RoR.

  2. Hi Ram,

    Yes this would be useful for the beginners in one way or other.
    There are a couple of sessions that are specially for the beginners in Ruby like “the basics of Ruby” and the “Ruby OOP”. Apart from that, the other sessions would also give you an insight of development and testing in both Ruby centric and generic way which would anyhow be helpful towards web development.
    In short, if you are a developer and would like to do Ruby/Rails someday, the event would be good for you.

  3. @Ram: In addition to what Sur has mentioned, it’ll be a great place to make new friends who are already doing Ruby/Rails work: there is much we can learn from each other, even after we leave the event by simply staying in touch. 🙂
