All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Friday of even-numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

Programming music with Sonic Pi by Andreas Kieckens

Sonic Pi is a programming language based on Ruby that allows you to effectively write music using code. Its author intended it to be used both as a live instrument that you're able to gig with, as well as a classroom utility to help students learn how to code in a fun way. During this presentation Andreas will give a live demonstration and also discuss some basics of music theory and how they can be applied to programming.


Joe Larabell will lead a session brainstorming future topics that people would light to hear.

Short (Lightening) Talks
  • Edward Middleton "Robot Sumo"
  • Curt Sampson "Syncthing"

The flow will be open to short talks. If you would like to do a short presentation 5-10 min please get in contact before the meeting to insure we have time.
