Java User Groups Community leader John Yeary noted that the Algeria Java User Group recently held its first meeting. The meeting was held in conjunction with Software Freedom Day , an international celebration of free and open source software. Algeria JUG members posted pictures from the event on Facebook.
The Algeria JUG describes itself and its objectives as follows:
Algeria JUG is the first official JUG of Algeria, is a local community of Java users who get to share information, resources, solutions, innovation, opportunities, and share ideas about real-world problems. The aim of Algeria JUG is to connect Java addicted, lovers, professionals and students under one roof and to make java developing more fun and easy.
The Algeria JUG has already put down a footprint in many places on the Internet. In addition to their Java.net home , you can find the Algeria Java User Group on Yahoo Groups (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/jug_group/ ), on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ALGERIAJUG ), on Wordpress (http://algeriajug.wordpress.com/ ), and on Twitter (@AlgeriaJUG ).
