AppSignal's 2024 Ruby Event Sponsorships

This post was updated on April 8 with new event sponsorships.

At AppSignal, we've always been heavily invested in the developer community, especially the Ruby scene, since most of the team comes from a Ruby or Rails background.

It was great meeting so many of you at Rails World 2023. While we can't personally attend every conference, we're happy to announce we're sponsoring seventeen Ruby events (and sending stroopwafels to one event on top of that) this year! That's eighteen chances to get your hands on some AppSignal swag and stroopwafels.

Rails World 2023 Sjoelen Winners

Last year, we were the proud sponsor of the first-ever Rails World. As well as sharing our awesome swag and freshly baked stroopwafels with attendees, we hosted the first Rails World Sjoelen Championship.

We offered the winners a year's supply of stroopwafels or a €200 donation to an open-source project of their choice.

As a result, thanks to the generosity of our winners, we're proud to announce we've donated a total of €600 to the following causes:

  • Neovim - A Vim-based text editor.
  • Lucian Ghinda - For his work on the Short Ruby Newsletter.
  • Bridgetown - A Ruby-based progressive site generator and full-stack framework.
  • Chatwoot - An open-source, self-hosted customer engagement suite.

Speaking of Sjoelen...

They may not have topped our leaderboard, but our Rails World conference neighbors and customer, ViaEurope, took Sjoelen more seriously than the Dutch national team.

Their dedication to the game impressed us so much we decided to send them their very own Sjoelen board:
