Welcome to Southend’s Linux User Group

Below are some of the latest updates to the site. The articles are written by the SoSLUG members themselves, in order to share their experiences, or expertise, and generally promote the advantages of Open Source software. Only a brief summary, or teaser is given below. To read the full text just click on any one of the individual headings

You are welcome to come along to any one of our weekly meetings. The format is informal and its an opportunity for members, and non members alike, to discuss various topics of mutual interest, and our skills range from novice upwards, so you don’t need any particular computing skills to join in.

We’re back! Due to the demise of our server, we have taken the opportunity to accelerate a behind the scenes program to move, and update the website; to produce a more responsive design, that better reflects what we do. Consequently few things may still be a bit ragged around the edges, as we work through a few remaining issues.

Why attend

Everyone is welcome, both members and non-members and of almost any age. It tends to be a nice mix of regulars, irregulars and some new faces, this is most definitely not an all male domain, we do have at least one female member as well. You can attend for free, but if you would like to get more involved, then our annual membership is just £24. Whilst we would welcome your support, membership is not mandatory, especially if you have limited funds.
