The founding purpose of Ruby Australia is to further the use and adoption of the Ruby programming language in Australia, and to support and encourage a vibrant community around the language and related technologies.
There are a number of regional Ruby-related meetups all over the country. Each group is organised independently by its members, and all are very welcoming to newcomers. The following groups meet regularly:
Ruby Australia is the organising body of Australian Rails Camp events. Please see the official Rails Camp site for more details.
Ruby Australia is the organising body of RubyConf Australia. Please see the official RubyConf AU site for more details.
