    What we're about

    The Java platform and its ecosystem is more vibrant than ever. Brussels is a great city full of talent.

    Mix both, and you'll get the BruJUG, a local Java User Group where passionate Java developers can, for FREE, attend presentations given by passionate speakers.

    Since 2010, a simple formula: an evening session with one (or more) speaker(s) on various tech topics, followed by a well deserved drink/meal in a pub nearby for anyone interested in following the discussion.

    Our stage is open to technology experts, developer advocates, but also to any of you willing to share parts of his/her knowledge with the crew.
