Ruby for Japan

On Friday, March 11th, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the North East coast of Japan resulting in massive devastation and human casualties. At this time, hundreds of thousands are without shelter, power, food or water and the conditions are quickly deteriorating.

Pivotal Labs, Intridea, Hashrocket, CodeBenders, Engine Yard, Heroku, Blue Box Group and New Relic have all come together to help raise funds to support those in need during this difficult time. Visit the microsite (http://www.rubyistsforjapan.com/) to learn more.

Japan is the birthplace of Ruby, and as a Ruby shop here at New Relic, Ruby has made our lives collectively better. It’s now our turn to focus our attention and efforts towards helping our friends, partners and the citizens of Japan. As we’ve learned from recent disasters, the initial rescue and recovery work is only the first step of a long journey and as members of the Ruby community, we hope to make a difference one dollar at a time. We invite you to join us.

Please donate today and consider sharing this with your fellow Ruby and developer community members on Twitter.
