After a year or so of being dormant and another year of slowly re-establishing itself mainly through word-of-mouth, Hull LUG
has taken the bull by the horns (or should that be taken the Gnu by the horns
?) in making bigger steps in promoting Linux and Open Source in Hull and East Yorkshire
Many discussions take place about Open Source and Free software at the meetings and through our on-line forums
. Technical support and knowledge is shared both online and offline. In the spirit of the Linux community it is free. We share CDs and boot disks and always welcome new members â€“ regardless of technical ability or knowledge.
We donâ€™t just talk about our adventures with Linux. As well as having a certain amount of sympathy for users of proprietary operating systems
, we talk about computers in general, as well as films, music, gadgets and all aspects of technology.
Anyone who has an interest in Linux, whatever your level of expertise, is very much welcome to join, weâ€™re a very informal group. If youâ€™d like to become a member, please head over to our forums
, sign up and maybe post a little about yourself in the introductory thread
The monthly meetings of â€˜Beer & Bytesâ€™ are informal, and held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Old Grey Mare on Cottingham Road (opposite Hull University). However we are currently looking for a more suitable location, where we can host talks and discussions. So check out http://hulllug.org
for full up-to-date details.
