Linux Users' Group of Davis - "Serving the Sacramento, California region"

The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers), an IRC channel for live chatting, and communities on social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn).

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

Questions or issues regarding Open Source Software or Linux? Our hands-on demonstrations and support can help! Come and see demos of software and how it can support you in your endeavors.

Most people want to \“try before they buy\”, even with free software, and this is a perfect opportunity to see how Linux and other software solutions work in the real world.

Feel free to bring your questions, computer or other (open-source) software problems, and we will do our best to resolve them with you.

Note that this meeting will be held at the Davis Public Library on 14th Street, in the small conference room behind the Blanchard room.

There is also a flyer available for this event. Please print a copy and share!
