Welcome to MDLUG!

Monthly Meetings

Second Saturdays

MDLUG meets monthly at noon to around 3:00 pm on the Second Saturday.
Each meeting usually begins with MDLUG business. A presentation may follow. Often general discussions are the order of business. (Contact secretary at mdlug.org if you would like to volunteer to do a presentation.) After the meeting, some of us usually go to a local restaurant.

The Edison Branch of the Detroit Public Library is our "usual" meeting place. It is located on the north side of Joy Road just a few blocks west of Sotuthfield. There are usually good parking spaces on Penrod Street by the library.

We are planning to run a room at ConClave as part of this MDLUG meeting. Our plans have not yet distilled. We may have some Raspberry Pi stuff going on. We may also have a few computers that can be set up for people to come in and play a computer game called Kerbal. The game teaches physics and rocket ship design. We could do a rough birds of a feather on any of these topics that you find interesting:

- a video editing session - Openshot open source software.
- an intro to Linux.
- cool things to put on a Raspberry Pi.
