The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers) and an IRC channel for live chatting.

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

* KDE Connect
Presented by
Bill Kendrick

"KDE Connect" is a project that aims to let your different devices communicate with each other. For example, can receive your phone notifications on your computer, use your phone as a remote control for your desktop, easily share photos and other files between devices (without using cables!), and more.

To achieve all this, KDE Connect implements a secure communication protocol over the network, and allows any developer to create plugins on top of it. Currently there are KDE Connect clients on the KDE desktop for Linux, Android and and Blackberry devices (with support for iPhone coming soon).
