LUGM Saturday meetups. What do the geeks do?

Posted by Ish

Mid-year 2013, I used to shoot about Linux mini-meetups on facebook, then they became LUGM meetups, all planned for Saturdays over an exaggerated intake of coffee. In the beginning, we would be like 3, 4, maybe 10 people attending. However with successful events like Linuxfest & Corsair Hackers Reboot, having more than 10 people in nearly every meetup was like normal.

Yet from time to time people shoot me questions about what do we do or talk about during those meetups? Some ask if they can attend even if they are still in college, while others fear they are still novice in Linux. I’ve made a colorful answer to these questions (^^,) … Enjoy it!
