We’ll be sponsoring Ancient City Ruby in Jacksonville Beach, Florida this week. We had a blast hanging out with the folks at RailsConf in Minneapolis this past April, so we’re looking forward to talking to more community members this week.

Did you know that the Tidelift Subscription includes support for many Ruby, Rails, and React projects, like Rubocop, byebug, Bundler, react-native-camera, and reactstrap, plus many more. We’ve even collaborated with Ruby Together to support essential open source infrastructure projects (like Bundler) maintained by the non-profit Ruby community initiative. Learn more about our collaboration here.

While you’re there, keep your eyes peeled for the postcards in your swag bag with a code that will get you a free pay the maintainers t-shirt. You won’t have to worry about us running out of your size or how you are going to carry your shirt home! Just follow the link on the card, pick out your size, and ship to your home or office.

We're heading to as many events as we can this year with the goal of learning as much as we can from open source users and creators like you. Speaking to you at these events helps us shape Tidelift into the platform that makes open source work better—for everyone.

Not attending Ancient City Ruby? No worries! We’ll also be sponsoring the following events:

  • DevOps Enterprise Summit, October 28-30, Las Vegas
  • QCON SF, November 11-13, San Francisco
  • GitHub Universe, November 13-14, San Francisco
  • RubyConf, November 18-20, Nashville
  • AWS re:invent, December 2-6, Las Vegas
  • Gartner Application Strategies & Solutions Summit, December 3-5, Las Vegas
  • Open FinTech Forum, December 9, New York

If you’re an open source maintainer, see if your project might already be guaranteed for payout! Over 4,000 packages across the Javascript, Java, PHP, Ruby, and Python ecosystems are eligible for income. (You can check that now if you want! Search here.)

If you’re an open source user, we want to make sure the software you’re using is dependable and well maintained. How do we do that? Watch this short video for a quick explanation. 😊 You can also reach out to us and schedule a demo.

So if you’re attending ACR, don’t forget to look for our postcard in your bag!
