Technology Groups in East Michigan
Michigan has many vibrant tech groups with focuses such as Linux, programming languages, hardware, or even just general technology. We’ve curated a list of active tech groups in South East Michigan, and we do our best to keep it up to date. If you know of a group we missed, be sure to contact us and let us know! (If you’re on the West Side of Michigan, CONGA-WM is a great place to find technical groups to participate with.)
This is us! Michigan!/usr/group is the oldest Unix™ based user group in the Detroit area. We’ve been around since 1986, but that doesn’t mean that we’re a bunch of old farts (well, some of us are)! We have a lot of members, and we cover all kinds of Unix and Linux related topics at our monthly meetings. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Farmington Community Library at 6:30 PM. Join us afterward for dinner!
The Metro Detroit Linux Users Group (MDLUG) meets monthly at 12:30 PM on the second Saturday of each month. Meetings last about two hours.

Whether you’re new to coding or a seasoned hacker, CoffeeHouseCoders is for you. We meet once a week in local coffee shops to work on pet projects, talk about technology, and meet our fellow hackers. There’s no “meeting format”, people just show up and do what they want: coding, storyboarding an idea with friends, arguing about technology, or finding startup co-founders. There are several local chapters of CHC groups throughout Southeast Michigan available to visit.
