A Joomla User Group (JUG) is a local meeting of people, that regularly share Joomla knowledge, experience and connect with other members of our community. It is a great place to meet new people, and is perfect for all skill levels ranging from newbies, expert Joomla developers, web designers, web managers and anyone wanting to learn more about Joomla.

At the moment there are 175 Registered Joomla User Groups around the world!

Starting a Joomla User Group

There are some basic requirements to start a Joomla User Group which include:

  1. At least two people to run the group as leaders (minimum)
  2. A place to meet in your town - for example a meeting room, a bar, restaurant, office space etc.
  3. A name which represents a town or city (not a country or large region)
  4. An online place to promote your group and allow people to find out about the group (e.g. website, Facebook group, LinkedIn group, Google+ Community, etc)

How do I find someone else to lead my group with?

There are many ways to find other Joomla users in your local area:


Help for User Group Organisers

To help those interested in creating and running a Joomla! User Group, here are some common resources to help.

Communication

There is a popular Skype chat which includes JUG Organisers from around the world - if you would like to join it please get in touch with one of the Joomla User Group Team.

We also have a Google Doc which we hope to convert over to be hosted here, this is at http://bit.ly/JUGSmaster.

Speakers

Are you willing to speak at JUG meetings either geographically near you or via Skype/Google+? If so, please add your details to the JUG Speakers List. Be sure to leave a means for JUG Organisers to contact you.

Have you got slide decks and resources that you would like to make available to others? If so, please add these to the JUG Resources page.
