Educational Gatherings

These meetings involve learning about Linux, and computer related topics. They typically involve a person giving a presentation, but also extend to one on one coaching, mentoring, or teaching. They are a great way to gain exposure to current computing topics, improve understanding of a current system, or gain understanding in a new area of computing.

Lectures and Presentations

Some of the Wednesday Lab meetings come with a presentation. In addition to food, drink, and support, one of our members may give twenty minute talk.

We also host five minute lightning talks.

For information about the talks, requests for topics to be presented, or to offer your talk, please contact Edwin Buck.

Bash / Shell Familiarity

Currently we are in the second week of a four-week course introducing the command line, gaining familiarity with the Linux enviornment, and writing simple Bash scripts. If you missed the initial presentations, feel free to join mid-class, much of the material can be learned independently without requiring the material from prior presentaions.


For those who have an interest in a broad area of Linux, and could use occasional assistance in pursuing their learning goals, the Houston Linux Users Group provides coaching services. These services will have one of our experienced members track your progress, and provide occasional assistance when small problems in your self-directed learning falter.

One on One Teaching

For those looking for deep knowledge in a specific topic, with a member helping to direct the learning, a few members provide a directed path toward achieving their learning goals. These services are not available for all topics, and are limited based on member availability.
