Over the past four years, Rocky Mountain Ruby has explored many different facets of Ruby. We are striving to make this year our most colorful! There will be lots of time for talks, for discussions and ruminations, and for exploring Boulder and its surroundings.
Rocky Mountain Ruby is a single track software conference gravitating around the Ruby programming language in Boulder, Colorado happening September 24-26. It is a mixture of technical presentations, community events, and outdoor experiences. It's all about those passionate about Ruby coming together to share and learn from each other. We learn, have fun, and connect.
Join us for our fifth year at the Boulder Theater. With a gorgeous art deco facade and a bar at its center, this historic concert hall was originally built in 1906 as an opera house.
The Boulder Theater hosts events of all kinds throughout the year, including musical performances, theater productions, films, weddings and conferences.
Rocky Mountain Ruby strives to be a welcoming environment for all its participants. While this has been true in past years, we underline this intent this year by adopting the code of conduct originally developed by the Ada Initiative and JSConf 2012.
All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.
tl;dr: Don’t be a Jerk
Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
