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, 13th February 2020 - No ScotRUG this month (COVID-19)

posted 12 Mar 2020

Hi everyone, This is March already and the sun finally starts to shine again! If we only had good news, everything would be perfect, but… with Corona Virus getting closer and closer to Edinburgh, things may become a bit less enjoyable. In the spirit of keeping everyone safe and avoid spreading the virus, ScotRUG won’t be happening this week. Fear Not! Ruby will still be there the next time we meet (whenever that may be)! Maybe a fully remote meetup next time ?

Take care of yourselves and the people around you, don’t forget the NHS COVID-19 information and let’s try our best to not spread the virus.

We will see you soon!
