What we're about

The Columbia-Area Linux Users Group (https://calug.org) (CALUG) is a friendly informal group of Columbia-area residents and workers who share an interest in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in general, and Linux in particular. Our meetings cover a variety of topics that are not limited to Linux.

The CALUG group meets starting at 6:30PM on the second Wednesday of each month at the UMBC Training Center (https://www.umbctraining.com/) in Columbia, MD. We have about 30 minutes of socializing over pizza provided by Aplura, LLC (https://aplura.com). Like the software that interests us, our meetings are free - and open to everyone.
