List of African Java User Groups

May 20, 2013  »  WebNo Comment

Java User Groups, known affectionately as JUGs, are meeting sites where developers of Java and other technologies can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and find opportunities. Java development may not be considered as in vogue as Android development, but the uses for both website and app development are still immense.

According to the Java.net Projects site, 14 African JUGs have existed since 2011. Abidjan, Congo, Faso, and Algeria appear to be the most active chapters.
