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.

Edinburgh meeting, Feb 18 2016 - Ruby Koans

posted 15 Feb 2016

This Thursday’s Edinburgh meeting is on the eve of Jim Weirich’s anniversary. Given Jim’s fondness for visiting Edinburgh, and that we haven’t had a programming session for a while, we will be dedicating the evening to Ruby Koans.

In pairs, we will choose a section of Koans to run through. We’ll discuss what we’ve learnt.

As the Koans haven’t really been updated for a while, we will also try and identify newer (2.x +) concepts to add. Perhaps we could make these the subject of some subsequent meetings.

As usual, we’ll kick off in CodeBase at 19:30. That’s in Argyle House on the corner of West Port and Lady Lawson Street. Head up to Floor L and we’ll be in the Nor Loch room.
