EuRuKo 2013

6/28/2013 8:30 AM - 6/29/2013 6:30 PM

EuRuKo (the European Ruby Conference) is an annual conference which focuses on the Ruby programming language, with an informal atmosphere and lots of opportunities to listen, to talk, to hack, to have fun and where delegates experience distinct and insightful content from speakers of the highest calibre.

EuRuKo is being organised for the past 10 years in cities around Europe by Ruby developers for Ruby developers. It’s a truly volunteer-based event and like Ruby it is fostered by the community. Each year a different european city and its local community of Ruby enthusiasts are tasked to host the event and that’s what makes EuRuKo one of a kind.

This summer EuRuKo comes to Athens for two days on the 28th and 29th of June.

We can’t wait to see you in Athens this summer!
