The Columbia-Area Linux Users Group (CALUG) is a friendly informal group of Columbia-area residents who share an interest in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in general, and Linux in particular. The CALUG meets at 7:00PM on the second Wednesday of each month. Like the software that interests us, our meetings are free - and open to everyone.
OmniTI is extending the courtesy of hosting the CALUG meetings at its Fulton Maryland office, conveniently located at:
11830 West Market Place, Suite F
Fulton, MD 20759
Meeting attendees should park behind the OmniTI building and enter thru the door labeled suite 'G' which opens into the meeting room. The entrance to suite 'G' is surrounded by large planters encircling patio tables. You will know you are at the right place if you see otherwise non-threatening muppets engaging in Reservoir Dogs-type activity. OmniTI is located in the office park north-east of the Firestone building, which in turn sits north-east of the Harris Teeter building.
All interested in FOSS are welcome to join the CALUG at our October 12th meeting for a fun and informal exchange of technical knowledge. Please contact Chuck Frain if you have a FOSS technology to present to a friendly group in a relaxed environment. The presentation schedule is open and flexible:
If you are interested in giving a talk or have a topic you would like to discuss, please let me know. We can accommodate our traditional one topic meeting or if a few people have shorter presentations or topics, we can do it that way as well. This is a great forum for novice speakers to practice their skills!
Please join us for pizza and soda between 6:30PM and the 7:00PM start of the January meeting. We do not currently have a pizza/soda sponsor, so please contact Chuck Frain if you or someone you know would like to sponsor food and drink for the CALUG. Until a new sponsor is found those persons partaking in the food and drink will be asked (but not required) to make a small donation to help offset the cost. All donations exceeding the actual food and drink cost will be applied to the next month's food and drink costs.
Please thank Mike Goff for his "Data Science on the Command Line" presentation at the September CALUG meeting.
