About the organizer

We make some of the largest IT conferences in Russia and the CIS

We are JUG Ru Group — a company focused on organizing some of the most popular technical conferences in Russia. Speakers all over the world share their experience and knowledge at our events. Our audience values hardcore technical content based on speaker's experience with the technology (as opposed to marketing BS or reciting the docs).

expected number of participants per season

Reasons to speak at our conferences

  • Content

    The 4K session recording will remain with you and we will attract additional audience to it.

  • Reputation

    Performing in front of a large audience will support your personal brand and your employer’s reputation.

  • Networking

    The speakers of the past seasons met and communicated with the creators of languages and technologies, and with coolest experts.

  • Experience exchange

    Your work experience will be helpful. Hundreds of people will hear you live, and thousands of practitioners will watch the recording of your talk.

  • Recognition

    To make a name for yourself in the IT community, you can spend years developing your channel or podcast. Or you can speak at one of our conferences.

  • Diving into the topic

    The best way to understand a topic is to tell others about it and engage in discussion with the audience.

How it works

  1. You submit a proposal on the website, and the program committee contacts you within a few days.
  2. If your idea fits the conference, we include your talk in the program and assign a committee member to help you.
  3. Over the course of several weeks, we help you to prepare the talk: we discuss it, review the content a few times, and rehearse.
  4. You speak at the conference, you get a recording, feedback, and statistics.

Additional Information

Speakers' feedback

  • JUG Ru Group are serious and uncompromising about what they’re doing. That is enticing. First, the program committee is willing to spend as much time preparing the speaker as the speaker is willing to do. At the same time, they listen carefully, suggest valuable comments, and the talk improves after each run. Second, the technical team here takes the talk itself seriously — whether offline or online. The speaker is accompanied on all sides by presenters in the studio, by experts — everything is duplicated multiple times, including people. I think that not every TV channel takes the technical support of the broadcast so seriously.

    KonturDevOops speaker
  • I have never had any problems with you. The organization is always at the highest level! It is a pleasure to work with a team that appreciates quality and cares about participants, speakers, and the quality of the presentation.

    Vitaly Friedman

    Smashing Media AGHeisenbug, HolyJS, DevOops, Mobius, and TechTrain speaker
  • Got only positive impression, the conference in terms of training and attention is at the top level. The equipment was thoroughly checked several times. The team had backup plans for almost any emergency situation. The speakers were supported and helped during preparation.

  • From a speaker’s point of view, the organization is one of the best I’ve seen. Although people in the C++ community are fairly self-organized (as far as I see), good organization always improves the experience for conference participants, including speakers. You can safely rely on fellow organizers to provide the technical aspect and focus on preparing for the talk.
