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.

April Glasgow Meetup

posted 07 Apr 2016

Update: due to absentmindedness I have only just learned that there is an exhibition on tonight at the CCA, so we will not get the usual table at the downstairs café. The meetup is going ahead, and I will try to get a corner of the upstairs bar (also part of the Saramago), but if that is also busy we may need to move to a nearby pub or café.

I’m so sorry! Especially if you have decided to come along based solely on the vegan pizza which I foolishly promised.

If you are coming to the meetup and haven’t yet RSVP’d, please send me a quick email or tweet me so I can send out any last minute updates.


Original post:

Get your monthly fix of Ruby help, advice and chat on Thursday 7 April at 18:30 in the CCA Saramago Café!

We’ll be drinking Lean Coffee in deference to tradition, but there will also be teas, cold drinks and vegan pizzas available from the bar. Imitation Postits and Sharpies to scribble down discussion topics will be provided by the organizer.

If you want to get in touch with David (the “organizer”) for any reason at all, you can do so on Twitter, Meetup or by email. There are more details and maps on the Meetup and OpenTechCalendar event pages.
