The Chicago Java User’s Group is here to help the Java Professional. We want to make Chicago the ‘best’ place to be a Java developer, by offering a support network that allows each individual Java developer to grow! Its only purpose it to serve its community by focusing in three areas: - Learning about the Java Craft - Making a Difference in the Java Community - Growing as a Java Professional

AND please, this is for those who program Java, NOT for recruiters, NOR staffers, NOR head hunters, career creators, or whatnots. While we do love what you do, this place is a sanctuary for us Java Developers. Wanna fight for the best talent in town, head to our LinkedIn group. Interested in presenting?  Email us at

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
