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.

When and Where

We’ll meet on the second Thursday of the month at 18:00 on Thursday, June 9th. Since we’re meeting virtually, we’ll send out the link via our Meetup page for the event closer to the time.


Cristian Rasch is coming to show off the virtues of combining a couple of modern, declarative JS libraries to help build a simpler front end.

We’ve had talks on similar themes on Stimulus JS and Hotwire over time. It’ll be wonderful to understand other alternatives!


Cristian Rash is a software engineer with over 15 years experience who specialises on Ruby, JavaScript, PostgreSQL, Redis and Linux. He is co-founder and has been part of the Argentinian WeCode community for the past 9 years.
