User groups

PDXPUG, PGUG.DE, JPUG branch Okinawa
User groups across the world
User groups 
start from
enthusiasm
!.
User groups are personal.
What’s a community?
A community is a group of people that
make things
together.
User groups meet regularly
in person
, to share and learn.
And drink a pint or two.
User groups help bridge
the
gap
between core
developers and end users.
User groups are a
training ground

for new speakers,
developers and organizers.
Become part of the community
without being online
.
Work
on code
together,
in-person.
Help
spread the word
.
Develop our community and what it
means
to be part
of it.
