No JUG in Israel

There used to be a JUG several years ago, but non exists now. I guess it has to do with the "high" investment Sun Israel is doing at developers. No wonder they mostly sell hardware.

I'm working on setting a JUG meeting in the near future.

Non local JUG in Chile

Once we tried to start one with the help of Sun. But without success. Maybe its time to try again.

Another missing category

I actively participate in a JUG mailing list. :)

You missed a category

Enterprise-only club

I'm mostly a desktop guy, and my local JUG unofficially turned into an enterprise-only club around 2000 or so -- I get the newsletter and in all that time, I don't think I've ever seen a desktop speaker listed. The current membership seems pretty big and pretty happy though, so I guess that's just how it has to be. But I bet I'm not the only one who feels left out by the local JUG.

Enterprise-only club

Hi, I am a Jug leader and I have to admit, that when I red your comment I felt like, hmmmm this transformation to Enterprise Java club sounds familiar. I have to admit that we are making lets say the same mistake ? I dont know if it is a mistake though Enterprise Java is motivating most of the IT java related market..though it is tim I agree the desktop initiative to ...grow.. Anyway very nice comment...I have to reconsider the whole thing I admit!

No Local JUG

Unfortunately, our local JUG was assimilated by the local WUG (Websphere Users Group). Maybe it's time to start a new one JUG?

You betcha!! WUG != JUG please. No way.

+1 to that. Most places don't have an active JUG and suffer from lack of coordination amongst Java developers.

Definitely post your location so others can help you set one up.
