FLOSSUK is the name for the United Kingdom’s oldest open systems user group. It was formerly known as UKUUG (United Kingdom Unix User Group) but this name did not truly reflect today’s broad field of open source and the connected communities. FLOSSUK is for people who care about open IT standards and the systems that implement them. We therefore promote the use of open standards across all technological fields. We encompass hardware, software, data and connected disciplines; our favourite tag line is ‘free and open technology’.
