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.

CALUG Meeting - On Hiatus until February 2022

After much thought and consideration I've come to a decision to put the CALUG meetings on hold until February. This is not a decision I've come to quickly or easily, but I think it's best for now.

This will probably be the longest hiatus for the group until now. I'm not gonna lie, Covid and Zoom fatigue has contributed to this decision. It has been difficult lately finding speakers for the group and, for me, finding time to work on things for the group. With the holidays coming up I don't see things becoming easier on these fronts. So I think this is a good time to pause, take a rest, and think about what we want from CALUG going forward.

This is also a good time for you to consider presentations you might want to give or hear about in the future. I'm open to working with people on them if you want critiques or input on your ideas. If you have topics or projects you would like to hear about, let me know. I can work on contacting people and scheduling out talks starting in February.

The mailing list will remain open for discussions.

The monthly CALUG (https://calug.org) meetings generally have a volunteer speaker who gives a presentation generally lasting 45-60 minutes. This length of presentation allows for Q&A time from those in attendance. The members are a friendly group and we welcome topic on Linux, IT security, and related fields of interest to the group.

When there is not a presenter we hold an open discussion meeting for members to talk about any topic which comes up.

Our meetings are traditionally held at the offices of the UMBC Training Center (https://www.umbctraining.com/Home) in Columbia, MD. From 6:30-7:00pm we enjoy some social time over pizza and soda sponsored by our friends at Aplura (https://aplura.com)! The presentations start about 7pm and last until they are done. The meetings generally wind up about 9pm.

Until further notice our meetings are being held online via Zoom meetings.

If you are presenting at a Con, to your office, want to practice your public speaking, or just want to present on a topic that you are learning about please feel free to contact us. If you would like to give a presentation please contact Chuck Frain to arrange a meeting to present at.
