The Beijing GNU/Linux User Group (BLUG) was founded in Beijing on November 19, 2002 and has since met at least monthly without exception. Awarded Best SFD 2007 event (1 of 3),[1][2] Golden Bull 2008 by CSDN [3] as a technology driving group and Best LUG of the Month by Linux Format early 2008. The Beijing GNU/Linux User Group has also been the host of many famous actors of our movement such as RMS, Ulrich Drepper, Mark Shuttleworth or Louis Suarez to name just a few.

The BLUG has grown from a monthly meeting organizer to offering a wide array of activities nowadays ranging from writing software to hacking hardware or just having fun around local food and drinks. Definitely a great bunch to visit if you're in town.


  • Meet every 2nd Tuesday of the month for regular meeting
  • Meet every other Tuesday as a social, geeky gathering which called BLUG Tuesday
  • Meet almost every 1st Saturday of the month for Coding for Fun (a hackathon kind of event)
  • One should check website/IRC channel to make sure the event is on
