Hello Rubyists!

Its been a long time since our last post. We have been travelling and meeting some amazing people and hearing them reflect on building Ruby Community. Since we haven’t posted for a while, this issue consists of a bundle of nice articles from the past some days. Among noteble mentions GardenCityRuby just announced conference dates and CFP. If you haven’t already, do checkout the RubyIndia Podcast, and hear some amazing rubyists share their experience in the community.

If you would like us interview someone open an issue on RubyIndia-Podcast. For featuring your content on RubyIndia, do send us an email at contact [at] rubyindia [dot] org, or open an issue on RubyIndia-Web. Feel free to forward this to your friends if you find it useful.
