LinuxChix Los Angeles

Be Polite, Be Helpful

LinuxChix LA LogoLinuxChix is a community for women who like Linux and for anyone who wants to support women in computing. We are an international group of Free Software users and developers, founded in 1999 with the aim of supporting women in Linux. Founder Deb Richardson described it as an alternative to the locker room atmosphere found in some online technical forums and gave LinuxChix two core rules: be polite and be helpful. LinuxChix is now many things to many people, but it remains primarily a group for supporting women in computing, specifically in Open Source/Free Software/Software Libre computing.

LinuxChix Los Angeles Chapter is not gender exclusive, but we do ask that male gendered individuals make every effort to bring a female gendered individual with them to LinuxChixLA events.
