Free Software Melbourne

Our group focuses on the social issues around software and technology. We avoid deeply technical discussion since plenty of other groups do that. We meet monthly, have a presentation and some discussion, then some chat about current news. Some of us then continue the discussion over dinner at a nearby restaurant. Other times we hold free software games nights, host visiting international guests, or run public events like Software Freedom Day.

The Ballarat Linux Users Group aims to increase knowledge about Linux and assisting both individuals and businesses within the Ballarat region who wish to try it out or require further information. Currently it is based largely around students and staff at the University of Ballarat, however we would like to incorporate the larger community as much as possible.
