What we're about
Started on November 19th, 2002, by GNU/Linux enthusiasts, the Beijing GNU/Linux User Group – aka BLUG – has now become a very influential group in the realm of GNU/Linux and Free and Open Source in China. We have attracted numerous community members, developers and staff of companies using or developing GNU/Linux and Open Source. We have also been rewarded with several titles of honor and awards for our contributions and efforts. Do take the time to browse our site to better understand what we have done in the past, what we’re working on now and how to join us in our various activities.
It is now important to state that the BLUG is a Chinese and English speaking open-for-all non-profit organization promoting and supporting the GNU/Linux community in China.
We hold regular weekly events and membership is free.
The Beijing GNU/Linux User Group has as goals to:
• Promoting Free Software
• Fighting for user’s online rights
• Act as an advocate for the private and business GNU/Linux communities of Beijing
• Provide education for those that wish to introduce GNU/Linux to their home or office
• Offer support to those that are already using GNU/Linux
• Create an inviting social environment for GNU/Linux discussions
• Help organize technical developments that solve problems particular to GNU/Linux use in China
• We seldom use meetup for contact, and for us, using (twis)Tencent's Wechat is a deadly sin.
