This Thanksgiving I wanted to give a special shout-out to those who donated to our indiegogo campaign, RubyConf or Bust!, which enabled Hsing-Hui and me to get down to San Diego earlier this month for our talk.
Thanks to extra donations and generous co-attendees who bought me macarons, margaritas, & armfuls of late-night candy, I came in under budget by $130. Today I donated that amount to the fantastic organization Black Girls Code!
If you missed the thank you slides in our talk, here's a list of the companies that paid for "corporate sponsorship" of our talk as well as a partial list of the individuals who contributed to our campaign. You can also check out my experience at RubyConf in this blog post. We wouldn't have been able to get there without each and every one of you!
