Groups

We are working to collect links to active user groups to help Ubuntu users connect with one another. Your participation is appreciated. The regions are sorted alphabetically and then sorted by the monthly meeting date.

Since California is a huge state with 58 counties and yet 68% of the population resides in just three statistical areas (Greater LA, SF Bay Area & Inland Empire) we have used the measures used nationwide to group the areas of the state. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and combined statistical areas (CSAs) are used by the US OMB and we use the same system for the regions of our state as well.

Central Valley

Central Valley wikipedia - Metropolitan Fresno CSA, Sacramento metro CSA (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Yolo, Yuba & Sutter counties), Bakersfield MSA (Kern County), Modesto MSA (Stanislaus County), Visalia-Porterville MSA (Tulare County), Merced MSA, Chico MSA (Butte County), Redding MSA (Shasta County). I see information about the inclusion of the San Joaquin in both the Central Valley and SF Bay Area now.
