Somerset Linux User Group

We’re a new local group for Linux Professionals and Enthusiasts!

Have a look at our proposed activities and objectives below and if you are interested in joining us, please join our Mailing List and introduce yourself.


Informal Discussion

Through our Mailing List we offer group members the opportunity to ask for support, share information and organise group activities.

Formal Meetings

We aim to meet monthly in a professional setting with presentations from either group members or invited speakers on subjects related to Linux.

Social Meetings

We also hope to meet from time in a more informal setting such as a local pub.


Short Term
  • Grow the mailing list by contacting local companies employing linux professionals, community groups, local media outlets and neighbouring LUGs
  • Identify a venue and speaker(s) for an inaugural meeting
  • A social event to get to know each other better and exchange ideas.
Longer Term
  • Grow this website to provide information on meetings, sources of information etc.
  • Establish interest groups, e.g. Raspberry Pi projects, desktop linux, self hosting
  • Greater diversity of meeting locations, e.g. Yeovil, Taunton, Wells
