The Scottish Ruby User Group is a collection of people who are linked
with Scotland and have an interest in Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
We meet every month in Edinburgh
for presentations from members and guests, and a chat about Ruby and
related subjects. All are welcome, and there are no subscriptions or
Meetings are announced in advance on the mailing list, Meetup, and
Open Tech Calendar, and follow our code of conduct.
We currently meet online on the second Thursday of the month at 18:00.
Currently we’re experimenting with the most appropriate video conferencing
solution. Links will be posted the day before if you’re signed up on Meetup.
You can browse and subscribe to the list using the
ScotRUG Google Group information page. The list is
for announcements of activities and general Ruby support and
discussion; feel free to post any questions you may have.
We have a Freenode channel
#scotrug, though it’s quite quiet.
There’s also the Gitter channel around the ScotRUG github repository.
It is also quiet.
To ensure we provide a welcoming and friendly environment for all,
attendees, speakers, organisers, and volunteers at any ScotRUG meetup
are required to conform to our code of conduct.
Organizers will enforce this code throughout the meetup and
meetup-related social events.
