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 when we have a regular meeting-space. Like the software that interests us, our meetings are free and open to everyone.
Meeting attendees are invited to arrive at 6:30PM to enjoy pizza and soda courtesy of Aplura prior to the 7:00PM presentation - so you do not need to choose between dinner and the fun of a CALUG meeting.

Meeting announcements will be made with as much notice as possible on the CALUG mailing-list and Meetup page.

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!
