Scholars Program

Be a Rocky Mountain Ruby 2017 Guide

to help bring a new community member into the Ruby community? We're looking for volunteer Guides to partner up with this year's Opportunity Scholars.

Opportunity Scholars are people who are new to the Ruby community or language, or may be new to programming altogether, and they're ready to have their first Rocky Mountain Ruby experience. They've told us the amazing stories of their path to Rocky Mountain Ruby, and we think they're going to be wonderful additions to our community. Your job is to help us welcome them and make them feel at home!

While there is certainly an intangible component of what makes a great Guide, there are also a few things that we're looking for specifically:

Please note: Guides are responsible for buying their own tickets to Rocky Mountain Ruby. We regret that we are unable to offer discounted or free tickets to our Guides.

Opportunity Scholarships

Rocky Mountain Ruby is offering a limited number of full conference registration scholarships. These scholarships are open to anyone who would otherwise not have the means to attend the conference, though we especially encourage newcomers, women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups in the technology sector to apply. The Opportunity Scholarship is a chance to learn more about the Ruby programming language specifically and software development in general.

Here are some things that are included in the Scholarship program in addition to a free ticket to Rocky Mountain Ruby 2016:

Please note: We regret that we are unable to provide transportation or accommodation support for Scholars. We do recognize that this may place an additional burden on Scholars traveling to the conference from outside of the region and will do our best to provide non-financial assistance in making travel and accommodation arrangements.

What are you waiting for?

Scholarship applications will be reviewd on a rolling basis until Friday, August 26 at 11:59 pm MDT.
