Let’s meet and talk about Ruby
Ruby Unconf Hamburg 2018 will happen on 5th and 6th of May 2018.
You decide on the topics, talks and speakers. This is your conference.
Give a talk, get inspired, code together, talk to people.
with all tickets you gain access to both conference days as well as free food, drinks and entry to the party.
Tickets are now available.
If you are a university student or still go to school, or you’re doing an apprenticeship (“Azubi”) or anything similar (Put differently: We’re using the broad english definition of “student”) and you cannot afford the regular prices, we can offer you a heavily discounted student ticket.
You should be able to provide some form of proof of your student status, like a student id, or a letter of enrollment, or anything, really, during check in at the venue. If you are in doubt, feel free to ask us via Email.

Unconf you say?
What exactly is an Unconference? It works like this: Everybody can propose a talk. Everybody votes for the talks they want to see. The most voted talks will be held. You decide what will happen!
Do you want to propose a talk? Or are interested in a topic you want to hear about? Add your Ideas to the list.
We’re hosted by the University of applied Sciences, Faculty of Design, Media and Information.
The easiest way to get there is by walking 500m from the U-Bahn (Underground) station “Mundsburg”, which is about a 7 Minute ride away from the central station (“Hauptbahnhof”).
It’s probably not a good idea to try to go by car, as parking space is very limited and even on a saturday, we can’t really recommend driving in Hamburgs inner city.
If you are arriving from Hamburg Airport, you should take the S-Bahn (Metro) to Barmbek and the the U-Bahn to Mundsburg.
The Venue is right next to the Eilbekkanal, a channel that runs directly to the Alster lake (“Aussenalster”) which is probably a 30 minute walk but especially worth it on a sunny spring day.
Next to the train station “Mundsburg” is one of Hamburgs largest shopping malls which includes a cinema (if you don’t like partying on saturday night, for example) - Be warned though, all movies there are probably shown in german.
Getting to Hamburg is easy - the Wikivoyage travel guide sums up everything you need to know about getting to and getting around Hamburg, finding a place to stay or even moving here: Wikivoyage - Hamburg
