Closing Keynote: Ruby <3 Open Source

A session at RubyConf India 2013

Sunday 23rd June, 2013

5:00pm to 5:45pm (HMT)

As Rubyists, we depend on open source software to power large portions of our applications. Ruby is free and open source. High-quality frameworks like Rails are free and open source. Gems are ubiquitous.

Yet there are rumblings that Rubyists take more than they give. And open source requires giving.

In this talk, we'll reflect on the immensely positive impact of open source software. We'll also reflect on why it's necessary and worthwhile to give back. Finally, we'll close with some practical suggestions on how to get involved.

Keynote Speaker: Software generalist focused on web and mobile. I like open source and work primarily on RSpec.

I work at Big Nerd Ranch, primarily writing web application backends in Ruby and Rails. I dabble a good bit: currently Objective C/iOS, Clojure, Erlang, and client-side JavaScript frameworks are on my radar. I like working on open source and meeting new folks in the community.
