October 2023 Meeting

The October 2023 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 9th of October, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm).

This month we're hosted by the lovely folk at Redcat Digital in their offices in Timber Yard on Drysdale Street. Full venue and registration details are given below.


BorrowMyDoggy - Connecting dogs and people via Ruby

Rikke Rosenlund says

BorrowMyDoggy connects dog owners with local borrowers for walks, weekends and holidays. Via BorrowMyDoggy, borrowers get happy dog time, owners get help with taking care of their dogs, and dogs get more love and attention (it's a win-win scenario). We started by winning the Lean Startup Machine, then received a crazy amount of media attention and by now have built a community of +1 million members in the UK and Ireland, and are working with some of the biggest players in the pet space. Come and listen to how a simple idea has now turned into a well known brand.

Your talk here!

Get in touch with us at talks@lrug.org if you'd like to speak. We're always happy to help new (or not so new) speakers.


Once we're done with the talks we'll leave the venue (after doing our best to help tidy up) and find a local pub to visit so we can eat, drink, and discuss the talks we've just heard.

Of course, even though this is the socialising part and seems more informal, please remember that still we consider it to be a part of the meeting and covered by our code of conduct.

Venue & Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees.

The venue has a hard limit of 50 people. If you register and realise you can't come, please use eventbrite to give up your place so someone else can come in your place. We might be able to let in people on the night who haven't registered, but we can't guarantee it.
