About the talk
Married, it's so good to see. You are still glad that you were able to make it. This is certainly a rubicon's like no other four different ones you bring Allison. Some things are the same swag hydrated snack and a notebook for taking notes on. All the amazing tacos. I'm going to see and I'm here with all of my Ruby friends. Some things are also a little different this time. I think there's no conference Wi-Fi to apologize for so I guess that's good. And we've maybe got some kids or animals in the background. You may hear my son
play for a little bit. In fact, it may be there soon. Even though hopefully, we'll put you not disturb on. and we don't get to hang out like we normally would but there's something amazing in this different nature of a virtual conference. There are so many things that we can do. We hope that you're excited for our hallway track with spectacular activities? Like a mani-pedi party escape room DIY snack break and crafts in your own Zine and we have plenty of ways to still hang out with your friends.
And so, without further Ado, I'd like to officially welcome you to Rubicon. Make sure you stay active in slack. I've seen a lot of you already are. We've got a ruby ambassador's here will be hosting Adcock, Gatherings throughout the conference. Keep an eye out for those. I don't forget, you can do it to feel free to meet up with folks, for breakfast, lunch dinner, lemons, he's whatever. The right mealtime is by you. We even got a guide to getting started with hosting a virtual event, posted at Ruby comp.
Org crap under socializing. Are we have the always phenomenal? Adam company, who will be our emcee for the conference experience? Not to mention our incredible programs, chock-full of speakers, presenting, incredible content conference fun, workshops and a hallway. Track. Now, we always like to have people raise their hands in the audience to see how many Ruby cops people have been to, and how many people are experiencing their first really caught. So it's never going to use the Chromecast to full
functionality to help us with that. So hopefully you see a pole, pop-up, let us know how many do you want to do, and how many of you have been to a Rubicon for a few in the past? Oh, nice that you developed pouring. In lots of lots of first-timers and some returning is welcome. Alright. Alright next fall. Is this your first virtual conference or are you already of Frau? Or maybe both. Matlock. The first one. But lots of folks are Pros already. That is great.
