RubyConf India Bangalore 2018 : Proposal for RubyConf

I had submitted the proposal for Ruby Conference, but unfortunatily it was not get accepted. The talk was about daru, daru-view, daru-io. My main intension was to get contributor and make peoples to know about the newly created daru plugin gem daru-io and daru-view

I bought the ticket somehow, since all the tickets get sold out. I got the early bird ticket from someone who was not available for the conference and transferred the ticket to me. Thanks to his. Prasun helped me to get the ticket.

Since audience get chance to talk for few minutes in lightening/flash talk. I get chance to talk about daru-view.

Talk: A modern gem for data visualization
