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.

Edinburgh, 13th October 2016 - Hacktober Night

posted 10 Oct 2016

Where and When?

Our Edinburgh meeting in October will be in CodeBase at 18:00. That’s in Codebase’s shiny building on Castle Terrace. The old entrance on the corner of West Port and Lady Lawson Street is no longer in use, so head around to the other side of the building where you’ll find the glass doors emblazoned with “Codebase”, and a glorious view of the castle.

When you arrive there will be someone in reception to meet you and guide you to the right place. If you arrive late and no one is around contact us on Twitter: @scotrug, or send an email to the list. We’ll come and get you!


October has arrived, and with it, the soft early autumn fades away. The balance of day/night is tilting firmly to night, and though we haven’t reached Samhuinn yet, the spirit of community pervades things. In that spirit, this month’s meetup will be a hack night. Come out, meet some Ruby folk, and work on some personal projects.

Feel free to bring along something you’re stuck on, something you want to get started with, or something you want to show off! There will be people around willing to help out, or happy to fawn over your latest creation. See you there!
