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.

We are pleased to announce that Orde Saunders will be speaking about Building for the device agnostic web.

Talk Description:

We can’t control how our users access our websites - they may use mobile phones, TVs, tablets, games consoles, laptops, desktop computers, or even their glasses and their watch! In this world, meeting our customers’ needs on their terms is a daunting task.

About Orde

In 1994 Orde viewed the source of a web page, realised it was just a text file, and thought: “I wonder if I can build a web page?”
Since then he’s built a lot of web pages but is still looking at things on the internet and thinking: “I wonder if I can build something like that?”

You can find us in the Fuzzy Orange offices at, Pentagon Centre, Unit 313, Glasgow, G3 8AZ

Start time is 6:30 for 7pm, on Thursday the 6th of March.

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.
