Since almost the dawn of time the LUG Frankfurt has been organizing two monthly meetups: a regular’s table on each second Monday of a month and a (technical) talk on each fourth Tuesday of a month. You find the date of next meetup here.

Our general meetup takes place each second Monday in a month at the restaurant Ginnheimer Wirtshaus, Am Ginnheimer Wäldchen 8, 60431 Frankfurt starting around 7 pm (spoken languages include German, English and sometimes Klingon and Romulan based on availability 😄 ).

Every fourth Tuesday we meet in the Wilhelm Derlam room at Saalbau Gallus, Frankenallee 111, 60326 Frankfurt am Main for our monthly talk on a specific Linux or Free and Open Source Software topic. Most of the talks are delivered in German, but hey, this is an ideal opportunity to brush up your German language skills and to learn about that FOSS topic you always wanted to know more about….

A few notes for the meetups

Everbody is more than welcome; these events are about sharing of information and meeting new like-minded people who are FOSS enthusiasts. Even absolute beginners are welcome; we all started where you are now at some stage.

Bring your laptop along if you would like to install Linux or have an issue with a specific piece of software or other trouble running Linux; it’s more than likely that somebody will be able to help you (if you want to install Linux, please ensure that you have a suitable installation media with the distribution of choice with you or make your intentions known via our mailing list in advance).

As it’s custom these days in Germany, all our meetups take place in non-smoking environments, please go outside if you want to smoke.
