Scottish Ruby User Group


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 costs involved.

Meetings are announced in advance on the mailing list and Open Tech Calendar, and follow our code of conduct.


We meet in Edinburgh on the second Thursday of the month at 18:00 onwards. Meetings are held at CodeBase, in Argyle House on Castle Terrace. Head to into the reception, and you’ll be directed to the meeting.

Mailing List

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 use the Freenode channel #scotrug. There’s also the Gitter channel around the ScotRUG github repository.

Code of Conduct

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.

Edinburgh, 14th November 2019 - November Update

posted 13 Nov 2019

What Is This Update All About?

Well, I’m glad you asked. Sadly, our scheduled speaker Will has become unexpectedly unavailable at the last minute. That means we don’t have a talk about metaprogramming to bring you. But never fear! ScotRUG is always here for you. Instead we’re bringing you a talk by Kevin Jacoby (ScotRUG co-organizer) on building tooling for irb/pry/the console, with specific gems and interesting examples. So, pop along at 18:00 to CodeBase, and we’ll see you there!
