Is LoCoTeam Luxembourg still active?

Personally I don't think it's a "language" question, most people in
Luxembourg will search help in German, French or English (in this order of
importance) in the abundance of forums available on the Internet. I thought
that the purpose of the local community was to meet in person. In this case
the problem is more geographical; we would like to gather the people that
live nearby (let's say max. 1 hour driving). This does in no way exclude
cooperation with other people living further away, but I think it's just
easier to meet frequently if distances are not too big.

Kind regards,

Dirk Estievenart

It’s not the price of the software that makes the real difference ; it’s the
idea that proprietary software comes with boundaries that keeps the user
experience confined to…well, being the user. That’s enough to drive any
developer crazy.
