The Ruby community existed before the association. We had severalevents such as Rails Girls Brussels, BRUG, or the Ruby Burgers. In November 2014, Christophe, Hannes, Joren, Oana, and Yannick agreed that all those events need a better framework, especially to manage the money. After discussions, they founded Ruby Belgium, that was officially created the 18th May 2015.
The first board was composed by the founders: Christophe Philemotte,Hannes Fostie, Joren de Groof, Oana Sipos, and Yannick Schutz.
