We are made up of Ruby, Python, Javascript, Arduino and other OSS programmers. BOSS welcomes anyone who feels they would fit in, or would like to, as our primary goal is to strengthen the Open Source development community in the Birmingham Area.

Meetings are held the last Monday of every month, barring holiday conflicts.
