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, 9th January 2020 - New Year, New Decade, Same Scotrug

posted 06 Jan 2020

Where and When?

This January, we will be back in CodeBase on Thursday the 9th, 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!


It’s a new decade! In the mix of the tradition of end of year lists, we’ve also been encountering plenty of end of decade lists. What was your favourite single? Movie? Ruby release? ScotRUG event?

Well, one of my favourite ScotRUG events of the last few years was a workshop we ran about Stimulus JS, the modest JavaScript framework that now ships with Rails. Now a few years later, Chris Green is going to talk to us a bit more about the framework, now that he’s had the chance to use it in production at FreeAgent.

As per usual, folks both new and old are welcomed along! We look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
