Did you know that inside ZT we have many developers who themselves own or lead JUGs and many more who travel to present at them. JUGs and other physical meetings (e.g. events/conferences, hackathons, BoFs, meetups and hangouts) are truly the greatest form of collaboration, community and content, but if you can’t be there then you lose out big time. If don’t live near an active JUG, or your time schedule is challenging, or you’re lazy, then you really lose out. Even though there are tons of JUGs around the world, there are a million reasons you might not make an in-person meetup:
So what can developers interested in being involved in this awesome global community do if they don’t live near a JUG? This is the issue our Technical Evangelist, Simon Maple, has been having and he’s on a mission to make things easier.
