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 online and in person 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, Meetup, and Google Group and follow our code of conduct.

You can also find us on:

Meeting up

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.

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 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.

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.

November Lightning Talks

posted 05 Nov 2010

To cheer the dismal November days, come along to ScotRUG at 19:00 on Thursday November 18 to be heartened by cheery lightning talks at the at the usual place: Edinburgh Training Centre, 16 St. Marys Street, EH1 1SU.

We have:

  • Mark Connell who will delight us with tales of websockets (with Ruby). You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll receive push notifications of events.
  • Sam Elliot on Chrome Extensions
  • Morgan Prior will be answering questions on The Ruby Mendicant University, a free online school open to anyone looking to improve their Ruby craftsmanship.

Who else would like to tell us something interesting? This month, talks can be up to 15 minutes long. Let us know on The Google Group.
