In my location we are fortunate to have the Tidewater Linux User Group, this group is in place to discuss all subjects relating to Unix systems, Linux systems and Free and Open Source Software. This is the first LUG I have joined and it has become a great resource to help me to learn more and inspire others. Most LUGs have a mailing-list, wiki websites for documentation and physical meetings every month, all of which are great resources which can be expanded by the more knowledgeable users.
If you are interesting in joining or checking out a Linux User Group you can find information at the following websites.
- http://www.linux.org/groups/ - List of LUGs by country, region and city
- http://www.linux.com/community/events/categoryevents/3-lugs - Lsit of location and meetings for various LUGs
- http://dir.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/Software/Operating_Systems/UNIX/Linux/User_Groups/?o=a - A Directory of LUGs
- http://www.linuxusersgroups.org/search.html - a liking of sites with LUG directories
If you are already a member of a LUG, I highly recommend for you to see if your LUG is on the listed sites and add it if it is missing from the directories.
And if I missed any other good LUG directories please feel free to post them in the comments and I will add them to the list.
