Frederick Open Source
FOS, in Frederick, MD, US, is all about Linux and the Open Source ethos, and is for anyone who is
• curious about Linux,
• seeking alternatives to Windows,
• seeking to advance their Linux knowledge and skills,
• seeking alternatives to common proprietary software (including to run on Windows and Mac),
• a developer or other IT professional seeking to better apply their craft in Linux environments,
• a Linux admin or other Linux professional seeking career networking opportunities (patience and comfort with non-professionals and willingness to help them use Linux, and skill in a teaching role, are all greatly valued in FOS).
The 2020 SFD event for FOS is listed at: https://www.meetup.com/FrederickOpenSource/events/271719804/
This group is also intended for STEM students to experience the potential of Linux and associated open source software, and consider the value of a career in this field.
Meeting topics cover a range of experience levels from beginner through advanced professional.
Oh, and we have a lot of fun doing this too!
