EuregJUG Maas-Rhine is a cross-border, english-language Java User Group. Java User Groups (JUGs) are volunteer, non-commercial organizations of enthusiasts that strive to distribute Java-related knowledge in their neighbourhood. They provide a meeting place for Java users to get information, share resources and solutions, increase networking and expand Java Technology expertise. The Euregio Maas-Rhine is lacking such a group, despite its potential of nearly 4m inhabitants and an infrastructure of computer science related universities and companies. We want to fill that gap.
"EuregJUG" is a portmanteau of "Euregio" and "JUG" (Java User Group) emphasizing the geographical and technical scope of the group.
