This one took place on November, 12 in Minsk and has attracted speakers from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, including Rubyroid Labs CEO Valentine Zavadskiy. Have a look at recap of this great event.

Valentine Zavadskiy was glad to take part in this event. This is not the first time when Valentine makes his input to Belarus Ruby community.

This time his report was devoted to the strong competition between Ruby and Node.js. At the moment Javascript has conquered the world of frontend and started steadily intrude into backend world. Having Node.js as his flagship and weekly growing amount of frameworks, Javascript starts to take jobs from Ruby hipsters (and not only hipsters). One should know their enemies well, so this time Valentine suggested having a closer look at Javascript and learning how win our Ruby territories back.
Sounds interesting, right? Here you can find the full video of Valentine’s speech (sorry, only Russian language)

Hopefully you enjoyed this piece and found great ideas for your project.
