About UKUUG

UKUUG - the UK's Unix and Open Systems User Group - is a non-profit organization and technical forum for the advocacy of open systems, particularly Unix and Unix-like operating systems, the promotion of free and open-source software, and the advancement of open programming standards and networking protocols.

It uniquely caters for the needs of people in this area. Formed in 1976 is totally funded by membership subscriptions and is completely independent of specific hardware and software vendors. All profits are used to further the activities of the organization.

Recently, UKUUG introduced Sponsoring Memberships,. The extra income is to be used to finance activities that UKUUG would otherwise be unable to afford.

Membership is composed of those who want to keep abreast of everything that happens in the world Open Systems and is drawn from the information technology, commercial, and research/academic sectors in fairly even proportions. It is representative of workers in a variety of fields including software engineering, computer manufacturing, end users, software houses, universities, and research centres.

The group is run by the Council and supported by the UKUUG Secretariat. There are also working groups that deal with specific activities.
