The Vancouver Linux User Group.
The Vancouver Linux User Group (VanLUG) is a non-profit association of computer professionals in the Greater Vancouver area. With over 1000 members, it is one of the largest such groups in the world. VanLUG's main purpose is to provide a forum for technology professionals to meet and discuss issues pertaining to Linux and Open Source Software. However, the group is also dedicated to helping newcomers connect with people, companies and consultants in the Vancouver area who can assist them. VanLUG hosts regular monthly presentations at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Special events are sometimes held at the University of British Columbia. Past speakers have included Richard Stallman (Free Software Foundation), Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly and Associates), Dr. John Mashey (SGI), George Pajari (Faximum Software), Dr. Steven Jones (BC Genome Sequence Centre), and John Drabik (Lineo, Inc.)
