Service of the week: Scheduled activities for the Guyana Linux Users Group


Judging by the recent pick up of activity at the  Guyana Linux Users Group website, we can see that Drupal and network security skills are in high demand at the moment.

The links section provides insight into the connections of the organization.  We can find out, for example that there is a Caribbean-wide organization called FLOS Caribbean for the advancement of open source software in the area.

The service can be accessed by selecting Activities, the first option in the main menu on the GLUG’s website

Let’s hope that with the increase in notoriety of their work we can also see some more activities to benefit their local communities.  How about organizing a lobby group to push for the inclusion of open source software in the One Laptop per Family (OLPF) project as it was recently suggested by the Sunday Stabroek newspaper in Georgetown.  An organization like GLUG would be the ideal technical driver for the economy-driven approach that OLPF is looking for.
