Linux Users of Victoria is one of Australia's largest GNU/Linux, free software and open source user groups. We conduct two regular events in Melbourne each month. On the first Tuesday of the month LUV runs technical lectures at Trinity College in Parkville, close to Melbourne's CBD and at VPAC's Training Room on the third Saturday of the month, LUV run a hands on workshop, addressing the issues of the users who turn up. The workshops have a "beginners" level talk, whereas the technical lectures are for an "intermediate" and "advanced" audience. LUV has three regional chapters in Ballarat, Geelong and Shepparton. Many of our members also attend Melbourne Linux Users Group (MLUG).
