ChicagoRuby Pages

Welcome to ChicagoRuby!

A Message for Recruiters
We respect our members' time. Therefore we don't give our membership list to anyone. Mass emails are off limits. The best way to recruit our members is to come out to meetings and mingle.

Who We Are
ChicagoRuby is a group of Ruby and Ruby on Rails enthusiasts. Every ChicagoRuby meeting features something for everyone, from Ruby Nuby through Master Jedi. Our meetings are a place where we share our knowledge and excitement about the language and the framework.

How ChicagoRuby Grows
If you would like to start and grow a user group near you, check out this article: How to Grow a User Group.

When We Meet
Sometimes our location floats, so be sure to sign up at to get the exact date & location for a particular event. We host multiple events each month:

  • Downtown Chicago: On the first Tuesday. 6pm-6:30pm = pizza & networking. 6:30pm - 8pm = meeting.
  • Elmhurst: On the third Saturday at 10:30am.
  • Hack Nights: Location, date, and time can shift from month to month.

Chicago's Ruby on Rails Conference
ChicagoRuby produces WindyCityRails, two full days for all who are passionate about Ruby on Rails. Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and investors all benefit from WindyCityRails.

Internet of Things Conference in Chicago
WindyCityThings enables developers to absorb a wide range of IoT information in rapid fashion. Get the maximum return for the time you invest. Move forward on your next IoT project with confidence. Master the Internet of Things and make IoT work for you.

Chirb and ChicagoRuby Have Merged
We merged with Chirb in July 2009. Learn more about our history in A Tale of Two Groups.

Meeting Structure - Google Group
Our meetings are designed to benefit members at various levels of expertise. A typical agenda will be balanced between basic, intermediate, and advanced topics. Every member has a say in the upcoming ChicagoRuby agendas. That way, our topics stay relevant and fresh.

Ideas Welcome & Encouraged
If you have ideas, suggestions, or recommendations that will help to improve ChicagoRuby, talk to one of the organizers or fill out our contact form. We look forward to hearing from you.
