ILUGC was started on 1997 and it is an one of the oldest Linux Users Group in India. We are a heterogeneous group of computer users from the South Indian city of Chennai (a.k.a Madras), united in our use of Free/Libre/Open Source Software and support of Software Freedom in general and GNU/Linux in particular. Most of our monthly meetings see a technical talk, not necessarily on GNU/Linux but also on FSF/GNU/OSS/BSD related topics such as Perl, Python, PHP, FreeBSD, TCP, IP, etc,. We meet regularly on every month, second Saturday, with technical talks and discussions on various Free software. Check our website http://ilugc.in/ for further details. Join our mailing list at http://www.freelists.org/list/ilugc (old list : http://www.ae.iitm.ac.in/mailman/listinfo/ilugc ). Our primary discussions happen in the mailing list and this meetup.com is for announcements only.
