Be Polite, Be Helpful. LinuxChixLA is the Los Angeles chapter under the international LinuxChix umbrella. LinuxChix focuses on supporting women in technology, specifically in the Open Source community. LinuxChix is a community that encourages participation by allowing the quieter voices a place to speak by holding fast to its core tenets, "be polite" and "be helpful.” LinuxChixLA conducts hands-on tutorials, installfests, and networking events through our Meetup page or on our website LinuxChixLA was established in 2002 and we are proud of our 100% attendance record at SCALE.
