edPUG takes place on the third Tuesday of every month, making the next edPUG in 21 days. It is free to come along, but we issue electronic tickets via Eventbrite to control the capacity of the venue. Get your ticket early to avoid disappointment! We’ll also email those with a free ticket with a reminder a few days before the event.
Details of the next edPUG are being confirmed. It will either be a talk / demonstration / hack session or just general chat. edPUG goes ahead every month regardless of whether a talk takes place or not, so get it your calendar as a recurring event now!

First and foremost, expect a friendly, informal and relaxed atmosphere. We have new members every few months, so don’t be afraid to come along on your own – our current members (edPUGGERs!) were all edPUG newbies once! Why not bring along a friend if it’s your first time? The more the merrier!
Everyone is welcome, from people who just want to find out more about PHP; to students considering a career in web development; bedroom programmers wanting to meet like minded people; to people who make a living writing PHP on a daily basis, either freelance or for one of the many excellent digital agencies in Edinburgh and beyond. People from all ages and skill levels come along, the only requirement is an interest in <?php ?>
Once you find the venue, you’ll be greeted with a friendly hello and the offer of a beer or soft drink. When we’ve established numbers on the night (there’s always a few latecomers!), we’ll make an order for food, which usually involves the famous PHPizza™!
While we wait for everyone to arrive, there’s often a bit of chat, or the Epic Fail compilation of the month to be watched on YouTube™. Often people will talk about new things they’ve seen, and bring them up on the big screen.
We are tucked away on Commercial Quay, the cobbled area at the back of Commercial Street, overlooking the Scottish Govenment Building. We are next to the Bond No 9 pub. If you are on Commercial Street looking at Bonde No 9 you are on the wrong side of the building (Sneak through the pub to the back!)
Take a look at this Google "Street View" link to get an idea of where you should be heading.
Find your way to the Shore in Leith, we are very close to the Cameo Bar (we are on the other side of the bridge from The Kings Wark). Find the entrance to Commercial Quay (a large green archway next to the seat made from half a boat) and keep walking until you find the buzzer at number 86.
There are many bus services to Commercial Street, including the very frequent 22 (Also serviced by the 16, 35 and 36). We recommend the Lothian Buses journey planner to find a bus from your part of town.
Get off the train at Edinburgh Waverley train station and jump on the Number 22 bus until you reach Commercial Street. Jump off the first stop after it crosses the bridge in the Shore.
If you are interested in doing a talk, becoming a sponsor, or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
