Ruby for Good 2021

Sept 23 - 26

Our Event

The Ruby for Good DC Conference is an annual event based out of the DC metro area where engineers, designers, product managers, and other gooders from all over the globe get together over a long weekend to collaboratively build projects in service of our communities. Gooders stay on-site, and hacking and socializing takes place in communal areas. Questions? Check out the FAQ or drop us a note on Slack or via email at info@rubyforgood.org.

This year we are going to be holding the event at a gorgeous retreat space in the woods, just about an hour outside of DC. With the pandemic and the stress of the past year, we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities where we could destress with our friends both new and old. Spending time in nature is good for you. Don't take it from us, that's just science! Plus, eating s'mores in front of a campfire after a day of civic hacking is pretty much the best thing ever.

We're very proud to once again be organizing the Ruby for Good DC conference. This conference, to our knowledge, is the first and currently the only one of its kind. We are bringing together technologists to learn, teach, and work on civic and open source projects.
