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.

August 2015 meeting - Austin Ziegler on Ansible and Rails

posted 05 Aug 2015

We have a special guest star for August’s Edinburgh meeting, on Thursday 20 August. Austin Ziegler will be talking about Rails deployment with Ansible.

Austin says

We deploy our Rails applications with Ansible. I can cover what we do in Ansible—with a brief introduction on Ansible—but I can also talk about our slug builder for Ansible-based deploys, Cartage

The meeting will be in CodeBase, in Argyle House on the corner of West Port and Lady Lawson Street. Start will be at 19:30, 20/08/2015; signs will guide you to the correct place, but it will probably be the Event Space on Floor L.
