Conference Raffle: Here are the Winners!
As you know, we rolled up our sleeves to get you some free conference tickets to make your summer even better and send you out into the coding community.
We have been offered no less than 49 free tickets at some of the best Ruby conferences on 3 different continents. Most conferences offer free tickets, which is really fantastic, but some of them will even cover flights and accomodation for you. And all of them are really worth visiting!
You are invited you to attend, talk, mingle and meet some of the most awesome members of our community.
A very warm thank you to all of these amazing conferences!
You sent us your wish lists. We made our brains fume by thinking about how to implement the raffle and and our conference raffle fairy has written some code. If you want to look at our cards you can find the logic behind all this here The gist of it: We made sure that everybody who applied had a good chance of winning a ticket and that nobody came away empty-handed. We also applied the rules announced on our conferences page.
Now heeeeere you can watch how winners were picked. Make sure to watch it in HD in fullscreen mode, it’s fun :)
Here’s the full transcript of the raffle.

We are so grateful for all those fantastic conference organizers pulling all these free tickets out of their magic hats for you. And we couldn’t be more happy: You get to go to fantastic conferences and in most cases meet other RGSoC students to rock the conference days with!
Oh, how we wish we could be there too and see you all spread your wings and fly into the community … but we hope, you’ll keep us in the loop and tell the world how your first conferences have been!
Now we even have a few tickets left … that calls for another raffle! We will let you know what happens next soon.
Happy conferencing, you lucky, lucky students! ♥
