About NORLUG

Who are we?

We are the Northfield Linux User Group (NORLUG). We are a group of Technology and Linux enthusiasts and advocators from the Northfield, MN area. Our goal is to provide a welcoming environment where people can come and learn from experienced technologists. While Linux and the free and liberated open source software (FLOSS) world is our focus, we openly welcome anyone who has a desire to learn about technology of any sort.

What do we do?

We host weekly social hack nights at local coffee shops (coffee house coders). We also organize and host technical, Linux focused meetings.

How do I join?

Membership is free! All that is required is a passion for technology. To keep up to date with us and learn about upcoming events, we encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list, join our Google+ community and follow us on Twitter!

NORLUG Revival!

NORLUG is undergoing a revival! NORLUG was originally founded in 2001 and was active until around 2008. Activity slowed down as many of the established members had relocated. Now, several years later, it's time to revive the group! If your a former member, come by one of our meetups and reintroduce yourself. If your new, come by and see what we have to offer! Whether your a professional, a student, or just an enthusiast, there's something for everyone!
