On November 13, I attended Ruby Day in Turin, Italy. It was well worth the trip. Like any other Ruby conference, there was an eclectic assemblage of people. I only attended the English language talks, as my knowledge of Italian is very minimal.
My own talk "Elixir for the Rubyist" was reasonably well attended and well received. I'll post a link to the slides and video later.
I was personally very impressed by Ju Liu's talk on Sonic Pi. His style of teaching was an excellent example of what I call incremental learning_ (for which there is probably a "real" term that I don't know). Additionally, it's hard to imagine anyone watching that talk and not_ wanting to play with Sonic Pi.
I also greatly enjoyed the talks by Ramon Huidobro and James Kiesel. Once those videos are up, I'll post links to those as well.
Turin is a beautiful city. I look forward to going back sometime.
