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 July - Meeting Up

posted 11 Jul 2018

Where and When?

Our Edinburgh meeting in July will be in CodeBase on Thursday the 12th, 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. 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!


What a summer we’re having. July is usually one of the two rainest months in Edinburgh, and instead we’ve been treated to sunshine, warm weather and pleasent weekends along with the usual influx of people. There’s also plenty going on: the Jazz and Blues Festival is kicking off shortly, the summer festivals have released their programmes (including Turing Fest, and further afield, sporsts are happening. Wimbledon is ramping up to Finals weekend, the Tour de France is spinning through Brittany and there’s some Football World Cup stuff going on too. What a collection of things to watch!

This month, we’re back to basics. The thing that sustains any meetup is, well meeting up. It’s the people that make the community, so lets gather as people have as long as we’ve been able to communicate. What are you working on? Have you encountered problems you’d like to talk about? Did you hear about something new you’d like to share, or ask if others have experience of? Are there things you’d like ScotRUG to do or be? Awesome! Bring your ideas!

As usual, we’ll supply some snacks to help get your hunger through to dinner, probably with some seasonal berries. CodeBase has water available from their kitchen. We’re a friendly group of people, and you’re welcome along whether it’s your first time or one time of many. We look forward to seeing you there!
