Jacksonville Linux Users Group

Jacksonville Linux Users' Group (JaxLUG)

The Jacksonville Linux Users' Group or JaxLUG is a diverse assembly of Linux users (beginners, casual desktop users, system administrators, developers, and IT professionals) that have a passion for supporting Linux and Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and live in or around Jacksonville, Florida metropolitan area. The JaxLUG, originally started by Daniel Stringfield in 1996, is led by Officers, who are elected annually.

To get to know us and become a member of the JaxLUG, please join our Mailing List and attend our Monthly Meetings. We also have a IRC channel #jaxlug @ freenode.net for real time access to JaxLUG members.

JaxLUG Meetings

The JaxLUG meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Regular meetings take place at Enterprise Integration. The meeting begins with social intermingling at 6:30PM and presentations start at 7:00 PM. JaxLUG meeting presenters and topics vary, for more information take a look at our Past Meeting History. JaxLUG meetings usually end with several members traveling to a local restaurant for a LUSH (Linux Users Social Hour).

Be the presenter at a meeting

Anyone, be it local, outsider, hobbyist, professional, student, or other, is welcome to be a presenter at any meeting. With a topic of their choosing, or one the group has requested. Simply update the wiki with information on the presentation as soon as possible, to provide adequate time for member notification. Then post to the list with the same information on the presentation.

Be the food sponsor for a meeting

Any company or individual is welcome to be a food sponsor for one or more meetings. Please send an e-mail to the list (or one of the Officers) specifying that you wish to sponsor food. Enough food for ~20 people is usually sufficient.
