About PLUG ...
Powys Linux User Group (PLUG) came into existence on the 16th November 2005 with our first meeting, held in the Powys Training Centre in Llandrindod Wells.
Our aims, as set out in our constitution, are …
- To promote awareness and increase use of the Linux operating system and Open Source software within the home, business and voluntary sectors.
- To provide a forum to discuss and gain experience of the Linux operating system and Open Source software.
- To help educate people in the use of Linux and and Open Source software.
- To promote contributions to Open Source projects.
We hold meetings monthly, normally on the last Wednesday evening of each month and starting at 7:00pm. Meetings usually run for between two and three hours depending on what we're doing. We don't always have a meeting in August, and our December meeting is usually held in the third week of December and is purely a social gathering.
Meetings normally include hands-on sessions led by one of our group members. We're lucky to have a number of very experienced Linux users in the group. Have a look at our current meeting programme, and at the archives of our previous meetings to see the kinds of things we do.
We have also run other events such as workshops and formal training sessions.
We are pleased to have been chosen to provide IT support and IT training on two sustainable development projects funded by GLASU and covering digitisation of local history resources, and making oral history recordings.
