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.

We are very pleased to announce that Ashley Baxter will be speaking about, well…. I’ll let Ashley explain.

Talk Description:

“Finding myself in the sudden position of running an established business at the age of 18, with no prior experience or knowledge of the industry, I share my experience of teaching myself the necessary skills to run a web-based business, learning to code and bringing a web app to market, and trying to steer it in a new direction altogether.”

About Ashley:

“An unusual combination of insurer and photographer, Ashley’s big girl’s job is running insurance broker, Brokers Direct. She has also been known to photograph weddings under the Girl With A Camera alias. Ashley reserves what little time she has for Xbox, weightlifting and convincing people that working in insurance isn’t as mundane as it sounds.”

We seem to have made the Fuzzy Orange offices office our new home and we quite like it. You can find it at, Pentagon Centre, Unit 313, Glasgow, G3 8AZ

Start time is 6:30 for 7pm, on Wednesday the 5th of February.

Look forward to seeing you there Map

Thanks to Neo and Fuzzy Orange for sponsoring the event.

Remember the to keep up with announcments on Twitter and join the discussion on the mailing list.
