When to Attend:

For now, there is no need to RSVP.
We will be holding meetups every first Tuesday of the month from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Where to Attend:

We would like to start in-person meetups ASAP. Until then, we are meeting virtually.

Ideas & Coffee (in-person meetups are postponed)

How to attend a virtual meetup:


Currently we are using a self-hosted Jitsi-meet docker image.

You can use the latest Firefox or Chome-based browser to access the meetup. If you ever “locked down” your web browser, make sure WebRTC is enabled.

You can test to see if WebRTC is working properly here: https://test.webrtc.org/

There might be some benefit to installing the Jitsi-meet-electron client on your computer, especially if you are having audio/video issues. If Jitsi-meet-electron is not in your local repo, try using the .AppImage: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron.

If you’re using Mac or Windows, visit: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron.

Make sure you set the Jitsi-meet server to: https://live.abqlug.com

To attend on a smartphone, use the Jitsi-meet app:
Jitsi Meet on iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/jitsi-meet/id1165103905
Jitsi Meet on Android Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.jitsi.meet&hl=en_US
Jitsi Meet on F-Droid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.jitsi.meet/

What to bring:

Any desktop or laptop is fine!

Snacks and drinks are very much welcome! I typically bring the plate-ware. We have around 10 attendee’s currently…

Caution towards children:

Currently most of the content at the meetups would likely bore most children. If your child wants to be involved with Linux, I would like to see them attend! Just worried that kids would be bored for two hours!

If there is a demand for a children audience, then we should probably create a second meetup. Maybe over the weekend? I would be interested in anyone has any suggestions. Though keep in mind that my time is limited…
