A Mastodon instance for Rubyists & friends

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in Ruby, Rails, and Ruby-related topics.

AKA #matztodon 😄

For anyone who's interested in or working with Ruby, or related technologies. We want to be a friendly community of communities, discovering new people and welcoming them into the happiness that is programming with Ruby :-)

Discussions don't need to be about Ruby, but you'll get more out of this instance if that's one of your interests.


Should you wish, you can contribute to server costs via our Patreon.

Become a Patron!

This is not required though -- the best thing you can do to support is by getting your friends to join us!

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Administered by:

Built for real conversation
With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
