The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers), an IRC channel for live chatting, and communities on social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn).

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

* The Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (The C-STEM Center)
Presented by
Professor Harry H. Cheng
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, UC Davis

C-STEM, "Computing, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics", is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate Admission for all University of California campuses. Participation in the C-STEM program is recognized in the UC admissions process as achievements that have explicitly prepared students for college and career.

UC Davis recently launched a new national program for school districts across the country that will make it easier for students to have computer science educations starting in first grade. This new curriculum provides students with a full first-grade-to-high-school curriculum that includes mathematics from the Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education at UC Davis (the C-STEM Center).

About the Speaker
Dr. Harry Cheng is a professor at UC Davis' Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and is founder and director of the C-STEM Center. In 2006, he found that few students in his freshman computer programming course had prior experience in the subject. Inspired to increase exposure to computing in K-12 classrooms, Cheng saw a larger opportunity to transform how students from elementary school to college learn computing, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (C-STEM).
