Welcome to the MTU LUG wiki. We'd like this to be an amalgamation of information to be used for future students.
Feel free to sign up for an account and then add pages! Email the lug-l mailing list or message anyone in the chat room to get added: Spambotters were creating too many accounts.
- Meetings are currently on Thursdays from 7-8pm in Rekhi 101. (Updated for Spring 2022)
Who we are
The Linux Users Group is a student organization at Michigan Tech that was established in 2001 to further students knowledge of Linux or UNIX based operating systems and discuss technological advancements in Operating Systems.
Each week, we try to have a discussion on a topic of general interest.
We hope to make it so that you have enough knowledge to get your own server up and running with a lot of gizmos and gadgets.

List of links that I find beneficial for anything related to computers. Add to it any more topics that you like.
- Servers is a page for the (hopefully) current configuration of our servers.
- Overthewire Bandit CTF - A CTF for learning the basics of Linux and simple exploits.
- Bash - Crappy Bash Crash Course
- Teach yourself CS - Textbook-based learning.
- Project Euler - Small project, math-based learning.
- Beej's guide to network programming - A good user guide in C-based network programming (surprise).
- Handmade Hero - A very long tutorial on how to write your own game engine in C/C++. Utilizes the Windows message handler. Rewrites SDL (and other) libraries before using them for a much better understanding.
- Martyr's Mega Project - A list of ideas/projects to write to give ideas on what to keep programming.
- Building your own X - A list of ways to building your own types of systems. Some are very challenging, while some are straightforward.
- (Intermediate) Challenging projects 1 - Small list of week-to-month long projects that create some fascinating applications.
- (Intermediate) Challenging projects 2 - Small list of week-to-month long projects that create some fascinating applications.
- (Intermediate) Advent of Code - a fun challenge to do data analysis and data parsers with daily challenges from December 1st to 25th (it's an advent calendar).
- (Advanced) Cryptopals - A set of challenges that get insanely challenging extremely quickly. Look at the final challenges to see they do not hold back on any aspect of cryptography.
- (Advanced) Eudypatula challenge - A dead challenge to start programming for the Linux kernel. Can still be done locally, but answers won't be verified.
