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, 10th January 2019 - Noodling

Where and When?

Our first Edinburgh meeting of the year will be in CodeBase on Thursday the 10th of January 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. Be careful here! “Code Clan” are right next door, but that’s not where we are!

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!


2019! Ruby 2.6! RailsConf Call for Proposals is open! I mean. Goodness. The days are getting lighter, though they will certainly get colder. What I’m saying is: there’s stuff going on.

This time of year can be a little slow as the year ramps up. To reflect this, it’ll be a gentle meetup tomorrow. James will work through a live example of getting Stimulus.js set up on a new Rails 5 project, and we can work through it together.

CodeBase has water available from their kitchen, or feel free to bring your own drinks or snacks. 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!
