  1. About the design of RubyKaigi 2018 @machida

  2. Designer • Github: @machida • Twitter: @machida • Works for

    FJORD, LLC, based in Tokyo. • Works designing web applications with Ruby on Rails https://rubykaigi.org/2018/team
  3. About RubyKaigi • A lot of Ruby committers are present

    • The committers give speeches Ruby Committers vs the World
  4. About RubyKaigi • A lot of Ruby committers are present

    • The committers give speeches Ruby Committers vs the World By listening to the committers’ speeches, one really feels how Ruby is built upon great programmers sharing patches with each other. One also understands how wonderful and fun open source can be.
  5. Ruby’s creation can be compared to building blocks

  6. Ruby’s creation can be compared to building blocks The lectures

    in RubyKaigi are given by people who write code. They love Ruby, and have fun writing code. They look just like children showing off their toys. To visualize this event created for them, the analogy of a toy (building blocks) seemed appropriate.
  7. RubyKaigi 2018 was held in Miyagi Prefecture Sendai International Center,

    Sendai, Miyagi, Japan © Aobayama Consortium
  8. One of the Three Views of Japan, “Matsushima”, is inside

    Miyagi Prefecture Matsushima is a group of islands in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. There are some 260 tiny islands (shima) covered in pines (matsu) - hence the name - and is ranked as one of the Three Views of Japan.
  9. By the way, RubyKaigi 2017... RubyKaigi 2017 was held in

    Hiroshima Prefecture, where “Miyajima”, another one of the Three Views of Japan, is located.
  10. By the way, RubyKaigi 2016… RubyKaigi 2016 was held in

    Kyoto Prefecture, where “Amanohashidate”, the last one of the Three Views of Japan, is located.

I also want to include some typical Sendai elements!
  16. Sendai’s famous general and traditional doll Date Masamune Kokeshi Date

    Masamune (September 5, 1567 – June 27, 1636) was a regional ruler of Japan's Azuchi–Momoyama period through early Edo period. Heir to a long line of powerful daimyōs in the Tōhoku region, he went on to found the modern-day city of Sendai. An outstanding tactician, he was made all the more iconic for his missing eye, as Masamune was often called dokuganryū (ಠ؟ཽ), or the "One-Eyed Dragon of Ōshu". Kokeshi are Japanese dolls, originally from northeastern region (Tōhoku-chihō) of Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body often has floral and/or ring designs painted in red, black, and sometimes green purple, blue or yellow inks, and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. Since the 1950s, kokeshi makers have signed their work, usually on the bottom and sometimes on the backside.
