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!

Coffee House Coders

Get together for good company, coffee and computers. Bring personal projects you are working on. It can be anything from coding, graphic design, video editing, etc as long as it's something you've been wanting to do that maybe haven't been able to find the time for. It doesn't have to be specific to Linux. Mac and Window's users won't be shunned :). Share your experiences and your knowledge. Have some coffee and talk with like minded individuals! Feel free to network, bring any jobs you know about, or people you know are looking for jobs.

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!
