What we're about

The Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts (formerly GA 400 Linux Group) was been started to allow the casual to advanced Linux users to get together and share ideas, knowledge, and face-time with other Linux users. We're focused on helping beginning and returning Linux users learn the basics by establishing a solid foundation. We'll discuss distributions, file systems and storage, installation, databases, networking, and more!

Please visit the http://ale.org website and join the email lists (http://ale.org/?page_id=5) there based on your interests.
This website will be used primarily for event notices, discussion lists and calendaring.

Definitely sign up to the general ALE email list if you want to stay in the know about ALE. You may want to filter email.

If you want immediate help with an issue, both the email lists AND our IRC channel at freenode #ale (https://webchat.freenode.net/) are good places to ask for help.

Upcoming events (5+)

NW Weekly Linux Sessions

Schlotzsky's

A hands-on group for assistance with installation, administration, or just about any question related to Linux. Attendees set the agenda. Usually people will form small groups of 2-3 to discuss a topic or work on an issue. Bring your laptop -- please, no desktops -- and show us your problem. If we can't help at least we'll amuse you. No presentations. If there's interest we can work through a HowToForge tutorial together. Usually this will mean having access to a server or VM (local or remote) to install test stuff into. Feel free to post the URL for a tutorial you'd like for the team to use (must be from https://www.howtoforge.com/) and the crowd choice wins. Please RSVP, so we have an idea of how many people are coming, but only if you are 95% certain of attendance. (It's a pain to watch for you and have you not show.) Location: http://w3w.co/fiestas.canine.instructors or https://plus.codes/865QWG3M+R93 .... 10% food discount. No official end time, but the shop closes at 6pm. Look for a group of intelligent-looking people. Failing that, look for the laptops.

Southwest Weekly Linux Sessions

Oz Pizza

This is a free-form "help each other with linux or linux-related problems", with no fixed agenda and no fixed end-time. Order food/beverage on your way in, then join us. Note: this meetup is pre-empted by any ALE Central meeting, typically the third Tuesday of each month.
