Special Notice

As of July 2010, CJUG is on an indefinite hiatus due to a lack of funding and sponsorship in the current economic climate. We will not be holding any more meetings for the foreseeable future, although informal get-togethers may happen from time to time. If anyone is interested in sponsoring or otherwise helping us maintain interest in Java and the JVM in Calgary, we can be contacted at admin@cjug.com.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, either live in downtown Calgary or online courtesy of Elluminate Live! and are free and open to the public.

CJUG Members also receive benefits such as discounts from professional book publishers. Details are on our User Group Programs page.
