How to Join

Membership is FREE! It’s that easy. To join DenverJUG, all you need to do is to attend the meetings. We encourage members to subscribe to the DenverJUG Yahoo! Group to be on our mailing list. Our typical meeting has about 70-120 members and we have nearly ten times that on the mailing list.

There is also a DJUG discussion group for Java related topics at DJUG Discuss.

How to Get to the Meetings

Meetings are usually held at the Auraria Campus Tivoli building in downtown Denver. Maps and Parking. Please check the home page monthly for any location changes.

How the Meetings Are Organized

DenverJUG hosts one meeting a month, broken into two sessions. The first session starts at 6 p.m. and focuses on Basic Concepts. The second session starts at 7 p.m. and features a prominent Java professional presenting advanced concepts. Sponsored food and drink are available prior to the keynote speaker. Feel free to bring business cards to the meeting. In general, our evenings usually follow this agenda:

Food and Networking: 5:30-6 p.m.Basic Concept Group: 6-7 p.m.
• Hands-on presentation of tools and code
• On-going question and answer

DenverJUG: 7-8:30 p.m. session
• Announcements: jobs/events/notices.
• Main speaker presentation
• Question and answer
• Door Prizes: donations from sponsors

How to Become a Speaker

Speakers are needed for both the main meeting and the basic concepts group. The presentations should be tailored to a technical audience, rather than a business audience, and should assume some fundamental knowledge of the subject. If you are interested, email denverjug at yahoo dot com.
