We cannot put on the RubyHACK event without support from sponsors and the community. The prospectus outlines our sponsorship levels and benefits. This year’s event will bring together Ruby enthusiasts: students, hobbyists and seasoned professionals to network, learn and collaborate. Presentations will be available after the event online to reach more viewers.

We'll have great speakers giving excellent presentations and the venue at OC Tanner is fantastic. All sponsorship support is tax deductible through our partnership with Utah Geek Events which is a 501c3 corporation. Excess funding will be donated to support community programming education in accordance with the UGE guidelines. Gracious sponsorship credit will be given with any donations!

For questions, please call Allen Maxwell at (801) 502-4745 or email us at
