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, 12th April - Group Discussions/Lean Coffee

posted 11 Apr 2018

Where and When?

Our Edinburgh meeting in April will be in CodeBase on Thursday the 11th, at 18:00. That’s in their shiny building on Castle Terrace.

You’ll know you’re in the right place as “CodeBase” is written across the glass doors.

When you arrive there will be someone in reception who can guide you to the right place. This month the receptionist won’t be present, so please wait for a few minutes to see if someone will come out to let you in! 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!


April showers bring, well, cloud and rain. Though it’s cold right now, the promise of higher temperatures is strong, and the floral expectation for May is high. The Science Festival is in its last week, with all kinds of lectures and hands on experiments, and on the edges of it all, ScotRUG.

This month, T.J. Sheehy is going to lead a Lean Coffee session, where everyone present has the chance to create topics to talk about and then, well, talk about them.. So, if there’s something you’ve been mulling over, from how can we use concerns in Rails, to what ethical considerations are there when building software, bring ‘em along. We look forward to seeing you there!
