What we're about
Linuxing in London is about celebrating Linux, open source software and clever technologies.
Our aim is to bring together vendors, suppliers, enthusiasts and IT professionals, and anyone who's just curious concerning Linux and open source software, its strengths, its capacity and its mysteries.
We make every effort to be an inclusive group. Please be sure to familiarise yourself with our code of conduct. (https://linuxinginlondon.wordpress.com/code-of-conduct-2017/)
Everyday we use Linux and open source software without even knowing it. It powers Google, Facebook, Docker and most of the Internet infrastructure. Without Linux and open source the world would not be as connected as it is, or look as it does.
In this modern age the development of open source software and Linux is striking. It is changing every week, there are new products coming out, almost at the speed of light. We feel there needs to be a tangible and friendly space to discuss those developments and learn from each other, that isn’t the pub or dominated by men.
• to provide a safe and friendly environment where people can come together, talk and be informed about free and open source software.
• to hold regular presentations from open source specialists on everything from the Linux kernel, the command line to Linux in the Cloud, and much more.
• encourage everyone to talk about and to use free and open source software. We are Linux distribution agnostic, we like BSD and all derivatives too!
All of our events are free to participants.
We are committed to a non-profit ethos and make a real effort to address the gender imbalance in technology. Women get ticketing priority at all Linuxing In London events.
We meet at London's premier technology venue, Skills Matter, every month.
But if you have any ideas, suggestions for topics or sponsorship (someone to pay for the soft drinks and nibbles!) please contact us.
Brian Byrne and David Ross
