The Ruby HCM forum is a “once-in-20-years” opportunity! By attending this forum on May 25th at Venue I, University of Science (227 Nguyen Van Cu, District 5, HCMC), you can:

  • meet the inventor of the “hot” Ruby language, as well as other researchers, developers, and employers
  • understand the world-wide demand for Ruby developers
  • learn the latest world of Ruby in web applications, testing frameworks, more efficient mobile applications and embedded systems development
  • become the first group to establish Ruby Community in Vietnam, and start to work with the world

    Ruby is a programming language born in February 1993 and just recognized as ISO Standard in April 2012. Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto, Ruby language’s inventor, is often invited to give key-note speeches by companies and universities world-wide, such as Stanford University and Google Head-Quarters.

    On May 25th, he will come to Vietnam for the first time to speak at the University of Science on the exciting and expanding language.

    The Ruby is now widely used all over the world, especially in Silicon Valley, where start-up companies need to release the creativity of programmers as well as to maximize the productivity of development. A research found that Ruby is 10 times more productive compared with java at maximum. And even comparing with easy language such as PHP, Ruby is still a few times quicker to develop. It is a perfect fit for Cloud Technology and Agile Development. Therefore, a lot of IT start-ups in Silicon Valley, such as Twitter / Groupon / Slideshare and so on, have employed Ruby as their start-up base.

    In 2011, USA has experienced the 2500% growth in terms of numbers of Ruby projects compared with 2010!

    Ruby has been employed not only for start-ups, but also for large organizations. In Japan, where Ruby was born, it is used for large organizations such as Hitachi and Fujitsu. Australian governmental offices have also decided to develop their systems with Ruby language. Those facts may be the reasons why Ruby has been recognized by International Standard Organization.

    However, there is a lack of Ruby engineers in the world because Ruby projects have grown so fast. In the USA, there is a 10-weeks Ruby training course for beginners and experienced programmers. After the course, nearly 90% of students got job offers with average salaries of around 1.6b VND.

    Currently, there are very few Ruby engineers and companies in Vietnam. So what are you waiting for? This opportunity is for you!

    Thanks to the sponsors from Japan, USA, Malaysia and Vietnam, this forum is free of charge, conducted in English. Again, you are very lucky to be in Ho Chi Minh City in May 2012 as this chance may not come again in next 20 years! Enjoy your day!
