Giving Back To Ruby

So this week Jade and I are up in Salt Lake City, UT taking in the Mountain West Ruby Conf. On day one they announced the Ruby Mendicant Project. This is a great idea by a Gregory Brown the maintainer of ruport.
The organizers mentioned that they would match dollar for dollar (up to $500) any contributions made during the conference. In a matter of minutes we pledged $500 and put Greg $1000 closer to his goal.
Why? I think if you look at what most developers pay for proprietary tools per year in license fees a couple hundred dollar contribution to a good Ruby cause pales in comparison. Moral of the story… If you are using Ruby to make a living consider sponsoring and event or donating to a specific project or a cause like the Ruby Mendicant.

Step up to the mic.
