About NORLUG

Who are we?

We are the Northfield Linux User Group (NORLUG). We are a group of Technology, Linux and FOSS 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 open source software (FOSS) world is our focus, we openly welcome anyone who has a desire to learn about technology of any sort.

Here at NORLUG, we host the Northfield chapter of Coffee House Coders, which is a weekly social hack night. We also organize and host monthly Linux and FOSS focused meetings.
