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.

posted 02 May 2022

Where and When?

We’ll meet on the second Thursday of the month at 18:00: May 12th. Since we’re meeting virtually, we’ll send out the link via our Meetup page for the event closer to the time.


Sergey Sergyenko will join us from Lithuania and tell us about the idea behind the Global Day of Code Retreat. As part of the event, he will code a game of life in Ruby and discuss Test Driven Development (TDD) and other good practices.


Sergey Sergyenko is CEO of the software development agency Cybergizer and founder of the Belarus Ruby user group.
