We are CPLUG, the Cal Poly Linux Users Group. We're both users and fans of the GNU/Linux Operating System, and we want you to be too. We have regular talks and meetings, as well as social events when the opportunity arises. For information about future events subscribe to our mailing list.


CPLUG's main purpose is to provide users of the Linux Operating System opportunities to socialize, and network, with both other students and people working in the industry.

Furthermore, we aim to promote the existance of the Linux Operating System as well as contribute new ideas to the Linux Project.
