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, 16th April 2020 - Typewriter, Adding types to your Ruby code for greater safety

posted 16 Apr 2020

Where and When?

It’s April, and we’ll be meeting up online on Thursday the 16th, at 18:00.


Spring is almost there! But it doesn’t mean that we can wander around. We still want to care for others and stay at home in those unprecedented times. For this reason, ScotRUG is back this month! but online :-) (Whoop Whoop!)

Our speaker this month Will Mathewson, Software Engineer at FreeAgent, will give a talk on how you can add types to your ruby code, making it safer and more reliable.

To join us, all you need is a device with internet access. We will all meet together via Skype which allows us to be 30 people at the same time. Should be enough right ?

See you all virtually on Thursday!
