Meetings take place on the first and third Thursdays of every month from 19:30 onwards. The first Thursday is an in-person meeting. The third Thursday of the month is a virtual meeting using Jitsi.

Wolves LUG is often described as a “social” LUG, with great emphasis placed on eating, drinking and merrymaking together. The atmosphere is generally informal and friendly. Subjects of conversation range from non-technical small-talk to in-depth technical/development-related discussions (some topics being completely bizarre!), with formal talks/presentations every so often.

As an informal rule, the proportion of conversation that is about Open Source/technical topics tends to increase as the evening draws on and people mention subjects that others find interesting. These occasionally lead up to a large round-table informal discussion/debate about some topical subject that can go on into the small hours of the morning.

The time, date and venue are announced on the mailing list roughly 3-5 days before the event, and a list of likely attendees is posted, allowing you to judge the size, interest and overall scariness of the proposed meeting.

In Person Meetings

We meet up for food IRL on the first Thursday of the month, so check our calendar for any upcoming events.

Virtual Meetings

Virtual meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month, from 19:30 onwards via the link below.

No software special is required for these meetings, you just need a web browser, a microphone and optionally a webcam.

The microphone built into your laptop or webcam should be sufficient, though a headset sounds far better if you have one.


We aim to hold regular talks so again check the calendar, though willing speakers are difficult to come by.
