Welcome to Buffalo and NickelCityRuby's second year!
Last year we had 175 people from all over the region and as far away as Utah. Our attendees learned an immense amount, had fun at after-parties, grabbed lunch at food trucks, and were treated to 2 days of informative talks.
This year will be even better. We'd love for you to attend!
We have 3 days packed with events for you:
8am, Buffalo & Erie County Library Meeting Room.
An intensive day of honing your craft through code katas. $10 deposit required.
Donuts, coffee, and pourovers from Public Espresso
Self guided with organizers leading groups to local places to eat
Bagels, coffee, and pourovers from Public Espresso
Signup at the first break of the day
We're proud to bring these wonderfully talented people and their ideas to Buffalo:
We're back with 14 speakers split over 2 days over a huge range of topics:
|Julian Cheal||Dancing with Robots|
|Coraline Ehmke||Aesthetics and the Evolution of Code|
|Meagan Waller||Learning From Failure|
|David Padilla||Live Coding Music with Ruby|
|Brandon Hays||My Little C Extension: Lego Robots are Magic|
|Pablo Astigarraga||The Dilemma of Simplicity|
|Kerri Miller||Concurrency for !Dummies (Who Don't Get It (...Yet))|
|Eric Stiens||How to be an awesome junior developer (and why to hire them)|
|John Yerhot||Can't touch this!: When things go wrong with an appliance|
|Sebastian Sogamoso||Services taste better in small disposable cups|
We're happy to be back once again in Buffalo's best place for learning: the library!
Downtown Buffalo is full of architectural gems, and our conference is set in the middle of it: The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library's Mason O. Damon Auditorium. Right outside is Lafayette Square, which has long been a center for the city's activity.
We're really excited to welcome you to the great tech community here in Buffalo. From meetups like OpenHack, to StartupWeekend, and BarCampBuffalo, we love our programmers, designers, and technologists of all kinds.
Need a hotel room? We have rooms for you 3 blocks away from the venue at the Comfort Suites for $99/night + tax. Use
Nickel City Ruby as the group code (you'll have to call them to get it!). We also suggest the Hotel Lafayette, Hyatt Regency, or the Embassy Suites. There's also some great places in local neighborhoods on AirBNB.
Thank you to the following sponsors that make this conference possible:
