Monthly Meetings

Second Saturdays

MDLUG meets monthly at 12:00 pm (noon) to around 3:00 pm on the Second Saturday. Each meeting usually begins with MDLUG business. A presentation may follow. Often general discussions are the order of business. (Contact secretary at mdlug.org if you have a suggestion for a future topic or would like to volunteer to do a presentation.) After the meeting, some of us usually go to a local restaurant.

We are now meeting at the Caroline Kennedy Library in Dearborn Heights. Take any of the small streets within a block or two NorthWest of Telegraph and Ford and look for the group of buildings. The library is at the NorthWest corner of George and Fenton.

Parking is available on the East side of the building. We will meet in Group Study Room number 2. After you walk in the main doors walk all the way to the back wall then turn left.

Using SQL for a Dynamic Website

Ever wonder how websites use SQL databases for dynamic content? Carl will demonstrate how to build a simple website using LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP). Bring your computer if you'd like to create your own custom website.

We will have plenty of time for discussion on all things open source. If you have questions about Linux, bring your questions (and perhaps your computer) to this meeting!
