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.

We are very pleased to announce that Matt Wynne will be giving us his Baruco talk ‘Treating objects like people’ on Thursday the 3rd of October!


We all know it’s wrong to treat people like objects.

Have you ever considered what happens when you design your objects to be treated the same way? In this talk Matt explores the intersection between psychology and OO design.

You’ll leave with some food for thought about how to model the interactions between your objects, as well as how to relate to the people around you.

As always a big thanks to Neo for sponsoring the venue.

See you at SocietyM at 18:30, for a 19:00 start.
