Baltimore, Maryland LUG - Baltimore Hackerspace


I want to invite linux users to visit http://baltimorehackerspace.com

Baltimore Hackerspace is a non-profit organization which provides a space for like minded people to meetup on a weekly basis. Check out the website for details. I would love to see more linux users hang out.

We are located at 6410 Landay Ave, Baltimore MD 21237

I looked all over your webpage but didn't find any information in regard to my question-

An answer is hoped for otherwise this thread may be closed.

Ztcoracat,

So here is the thing. We are not strictly a Linux user group. We are a hackerspace who happens to have lots of members who could help someone needing Linux Help. There is no fee for attending one of our Open Hack Nights.

I suppose there is no longer a Linux user group in the Baltimore area. One of the universities evidently has a "virtual" one now, having suspended actual meetings. At least, that's what I found via Google.

Hackerspace looks interesting, though.

Thanks, but I'm not the right guy for that job. I'm far from being a Linux guru, and I'm guessing the one at the university is now "virtual" due to a lack of interest locally. I think it's the sort of thing that springs up as people interested in Linux naturally congregate and then put something together.

Off topic, are there any Linuxfests in the Baltimore area? I went to Ohio last year and plan to go to the Linuxfest in North Carolina this year. If there are any closer to this area I'd like to know about them.

We just missed it this past Jan./2013 was the latest Northeast Linux Fest-
http://www.northeastlinuxfest.org/

This Linux Fest is in June of 2013.I (think) the closest one is in Virginia.
http://www.southeastlinuxfest.org/
Tidewater Virginia that is-

BTW; I tried to start a Baltimore Linux Group and the folks that agreed didn't follow through and never responded to my e-mails.

Understood. A LUG is the sort of thing that needs a few strong, core members. If they aren't willing to commit, then the group falls apart, at least without a steady influx of new members. I read Linux Format magazine, which has a section about UK-based LUGs. I'll pay closer attention from now on so I can get a better idea what sorts of activities LUGs have.

Thanks for the links. It seems any Linuxfest is going to ever be 6-8 hours away from Baltimore.
