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, Meetup, and Open Tech Calendar, and follow our code of conduct.

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.

posted 10 Aug 2012

August is an exciting time to be in Edinburgh, not least because of our exciting Ruby Festival lineup of:-

  • Pat Allan will be talking on building gems from scratch. Pat is well-known for Thinking Sphinx, travelling the world, and being an all-round top-bloke.
  • Sam Elliot will be bending minds, relating Erlang to Ruby. Sam last entertained his with his Dusty Corners of Ruby talk in January.

The talks will take place at Fringe Venue #AF27, the FreeAgent offices (as usual) at 19:30.

Update: Changed the date to reflect reality. Update: Changed Sam’s talk.
