RailsConf 2020.2Couch Edition

Bringing some of RailsConf 2020 to your couch

We were all quite saddened to have to cancel our in-person RailsConf 2020 in Portland due to the spread of COVID-19 (more info below). Nothing can fully substitute for the conference experience. That said, we're delighted to announce that we've engaged several original RailsConf 2020 speakers -- including multiple keynoters -- to record video versions of their talks.

That full slate of videos is below for you to browse and watch at your leisure, from the comfort of your couch! Videos will be featured at railsconf.com through Summer 2020, but as you find your favorites that you want to return to, be sure to bookmark the specific video page URLs, as those will be live indefinitely. If you have questions on anything here, you can always reach us at railsconf@rubycentral.org; otherwise, happy viewing!
