This page is for the Los Angeles County chapter of the UNIX Users Association of Southern California. We welcome people who are interested in any and all forms of UNIX. The primary focus of the group is our monthly presentations, which are designed to hopefully improve technical knowledge, rather than be just sales-type presentations.

Membership is FREE. Just come to a meeting, and sign yourself up for the (e)mailing list!
