You gave us wings – EuRuKo we are coming

WOW! Just wow! We did it! In under two hours we crowdfunded our trip to EuRuKo!
DankeDankeDanke to all of you who supported us and made our dream come true.
We are going to EuRuKo! You gave us wings!

This pledgie campaign to send us to the Ruby conference EuRuKo in Amsterdam was our first time ever in using crowdfunding and we are blown away from the success. Not only did you help us pay for our trip, you even donated some more money, which we will use to show up on other conferences! YEHAA! Get ready for some Berlin Rails Girls, mixing up your events!

Thank you so much for making this happen!
