BLUG was started in 1998 by a small group of computer geeks in Bellingham, Washington who wanted to get off Windows and learn from local Unix gurus.  Our focus is on Linux and all Open Source software.

We hold a presentation meeting the first Thursday of the month at Bellingham Technical College in Campus Center room 201 (CC201). On the second Thursday we hold an informal organization meeting with the time and location announced on our mailing list. We also put on special events including the regional LinuxFest Northwest in the Spring.

“Hands-on Help Time” from 6:30pm til 7pm, BLUG/LFNW & Linux News, Q&A, and a presentation by John Blanford: “Open Source Video Production for LinuxFest Northwest.”

John’s Presentation:
Over the last 4 years we have been recording the presentations given at LinuxFest Northwest. We have developed a successful Youtube channel that has over 1500 subscribers and over 120,000 views.

Starting this year, we will be switching to an all open source recording solution using OBS Studio (https://obsproject.com/). John will talk about how we do the recordings and demonstrate OBS using some of the new equipment we will be using this year.

Hands-on Help Time
Starting at 6:30pm, 1/2 hour prior to the regular 7pm start time, BLUG offers hands-on help for anyone with a Linux issue. Bring your computer and let the BLUG folks give you a hand.
