Welcome to BLUG

BLUG was started in 1998 by a small group of computer geeks who wanted to get off Windows and learn from local Unix gurus. We hold a presentation meeting the first Thursday of the month at Bellingham Technical College in Campus Center CC201. On the second Thursday we hold an informal organization meeting with the time and location announced on the mailing list. We also put on special events including the regional LinuxFest Northwest in the Spring.

Meetings usually take place the 1st and 2nd Thursday of the month. Members should abide by the BLUG code of conduct.
