JBoss User Groups (JBUGS)


A JBoss User Group is a group of people who share a common interest in JBoss software. They are organized and supported by the community and meet on a regular basis to discuss new technologies, development methodologies, interesting use cases, and other technical topics. The common goal is to provide education, help, and social events for the community and to promote open source.

If you would like to meet face-to-face with other members of the community then you can attend one of the JBug meetings in your local area. Similarly if you have something that you would like to talk about then feel free to contact your local JBug and ask to give a small presentation at the next meeting.

How to start a User Group

If there isn't a JBoss User Group in your area then we'd be more than happy to help you start one. With a little effort to get the ball rolling the results can be very rewarding, both personally and professionally. Read the JBUG Guide or Contact us for details on how we can help and advice on what to do.
