Welcome to MDLUG!

What's New?

Items of interest for the MDLUG community

The elections are over and the new officers have accepted their duties.

Since several members at the January meeting expressed an interest in website development, we will start having a session at each meeting to learn how to create and enhance a website. Our live, interactive sessions will be based on the excellent w3schools.com website.

Monthly Meetings

Second Saturdays

MDLUG meets monthly at 12:00 pm to around 3:00 pm on the Second Saturday. Each meeting usually begins with MDLUG business and/or an open discussion. The formal presentation starts at 1:00 pm. After the meeting, some of us usually go to a local restaurant.

We are now meeting at the Caroline Kennedy Library in Dearborn Heights. Take any of the small streets within a block or two NorthWest of Telegraph and Ford and look for the group of buildings. The library is at the NorthWest corner of George and Fenton.

Parking is available on the West side of the building. There are several meeting rooms, so ask at the front desk if you cannot find us.

Next Meeting

April 8, 2017

DPL Website

Victor Ibegbu, Assistant Director for Information Systems of the Detroit Public Library, will talk about how their web server caters to a wider variety of users than most servers and does so within a very limited budget. Victor will explain how accurate updates managed, how availability is maintained, and how the server is protected from attacks.

The next session in the website development series will demonstrate how to build a webpage using the tools at the w3schools.com website.

We will have plenty of time for discussion on all things open source. If you have questions about Linux, bring your questions (and perhaps your computer) to this meeting!
