A Year of Ruby, Together (EuRuKo 2016)

Ruby Together is a simple concept: Ruby developers and companies all pay a small amount of money. That money ensures that Bundler, RubyGems, and other critical software continues to work, by paying developers to work on it. While the concept is simple, creating Ruby Together was very complicated in practice. In this talk I’ll explain why I was motivated to start Ruby Together, how it became possible, and what we have done for Ruby in our first year.
