For information about upcoming weekly and monthly meetings, please check the ALE Meetup Group Calendar. We do not, and never will, require anyone to sign up with Meetup (or any other service) to attend any of our meetings; we only use it as an additional platform to connect with others in the local Atlanta area who are also interested in Linux.

Charles Shapiro is a fan of fencing, juggling, gadgetry and most everything
‘geek’. Consistent to this calling he has been a professional programmer for
over 10 years, specializing in C and unix with a couple years of C++, Perl and
Python in the mix. He can also type faster than most people can talk, is a
Linux Lunacy Cruise alumnae, and has been a happy Linux zealot since 1996.

Meeting time is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm
