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.

Edinburgh June Meeting - Martin Rehfeld from Berlin RUG

posted 02 Jun 2011

The June meeting is going to be a bit special - the first in a new European Speaker Exchange Programme masterminded by the Berlin Ruby User Group. Martin Rehfeld will be talking about the lessons learned developing his new service featuring dynamic Javascript and CSS delivery through the Amazon Cloudfront CDN. Other parts include a custom backend using evented Ruby code (Thin/Async Rack/Eventmachine). It promises to be an exciting meeting, and in due course we’ll be catapulting one of our own speakers over the North Sea to Berlin. Martin will be in Edinburgh from June 14 to June 17, so let’s all make him welcome.

We will be at the usual place, The Edinburgh Training Centre on Thursday 16 June.

The speaker exchange programme is looking for some sponsorship, particularly to cover Martin’s cost. If your company can help, get in touch via the Google Group or email paul [{at}]
