It's taken us a little while, but it looks like we've finally got our web site looking like home. While a few pieces of functionality are missing, like an integrated calendar, I think I can say without hesitation that this new website is going to be a place we can stick with long into the future.
This new website marks the beginning of a new age for the LUG. When we were founded, we did a lot more work specifically with Linux, but lately, we've grown to become more of a community of developers and makers that are related to Linux in spirit. We could call ourselves a Linux/Open Source/Developer Group, but LOSDG is a weird acronym.
In our newly minted About Us page, I think I hit on some of the key points about what this group has become. Our group is about the development of a strongly knit community of developers that seek to learn new things from each other and share what we love with our guests. This site exemplifies that: the site is the coordinated outward appearance of the diverse people who make it up. On the front page, you see this news article right next to the Twitter posts of our members.
You don't have to be a Linux User to be a member of our group. You don't even have to know how to program. As long as you're interested in doing cool things with technology, we're interested in having you and we hope you'll be just as interested in being with us.
It's been a good year, and we look forward to starting the next one off with a bang. Hope to see you all at a meeting some time!
