OPLUG - Oslo Pils and Linux User Group

Meetings are presently (Autumn 2017) held at Trikkestallen, on Torshovgata 250m east of Vogts gate, where the Torshov tram stop is. Our tradition of changing venue roughly yearly has been somewhat neglected of late, so we are open to suggestions for a new venue. We have a mailing list, talk at the domain of this web-site.

To join the OPLUG mailing list, send a message to <dk@syse.no> asking to be added to the talk@oplug list.

We used to have a tradition of recording our meetings: the results may be found below.

Next meeting: OPLUG Mk.CLXXXI

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017; probably a 15th anniversary.

OPLUG Mk.CLXXX

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 (notes from Eddy).

Among the 17 attendees, we noticed that the 7 who've been employed to develop web browsers had, between us, more than a century of experience of web browser development. (Four at around 17 years, one at 19, one at about 13 and one at a mere ten. In fact, omitting this humble scribe, six totalled a century, if those rough numbers are right.) Between us, we have worked for three browser suppliers; and two of us shall soon start working for a fourth.

One of those present observed that, since the first entry below is the third gathering and dated December 2002, our next gathering is probably a fifteenth anniversary.
