RailsConf 2016: Are Ruby and Rails Still Trendy?

Hello everyone,

Looking back at the history of Ruby and Rails, we can’t help but highlight 2006 – the year IntelliJ IDEA Ruby Plugin was released and the first RailsConf took place in Chicago. Now, ten years later, we’re excited that the RailsConf 2016 is about to begin.

The RubyMine team has visited RailsConf each and every year since 2010, and always got back from it inspired and full of new ideas for RubyMine, all thanks to the incredible Ruby community!

Nowadays, some say that Ruby and Rails are on the decline and the community is not as active as it used to be. Is this really true? Let’s find the answer together!
