What is Birmingham LUG?
Birmingham Linux User Group (LUG) is loose gathering of professionals, private individuals, students and other interested people who use (or want to use) the Linux operating system and free/open source software.
Birmingham LUG is free to attend and there are no subscription fees. If you follow on to the pub then you have to buy your own beer.
Where is Birmingham?
In the West Midlands, an important part of the UK. For Alabama you want BALU
S is for Software
As far as we know, this is the only Linux User Group in Birmingham, and the only group that has ever really existed. Birmingham Linux User Group is also called SBLUG for arbitrary historical reasons. At your option, the S can stand for South, Solihull, or Sandwell. Wherever you are from, you very welcome indeed!
I am new to all this and I feel too intimidated to get involved.
Do not worry, we do not bite. We try to be very friendly and welcoming to newcomers. Our meeting normally takes place in the University, one of the safest places in the whole of the city.
