About Us

We are a very loosely organized group of GNU/Linux and open source software enthusiasts, that live/work/meet in the San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles in Southern Californina. You don't actually need to live in the Valley to join, but attending meetings is more difficult if you don't. Please see our Announcements page for more information on meetings. If you can't attend regular meetings you can still get involved here at this wiki, or in our IRC chat on freenode in #sfvlug.
