Why join a User group
User Groups: Meet and learn with your peers
User groups are typically independently run, volunteer groups that meet on a regular basis to discuss and share information on a variety of technical topics. Participation in a user group is an excellent, inexpensive way to receive technical content, education and to meet with your peers to get more out of the products, technologies, and resources which you are interested in. A users’ group (also users group or user group) is a type of club focused on the use of a particular technology
The Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG) is an International, platform-independent, volunteer-run nonprofit organization devoted to helping user groups offer better services to their members group. Sort of a User group of user groups.
With over 300 member groups, there are probably several groups within a 250 mile radius of you. Look them up on the APCUG web site via the User Group Locator
and get to meet other people with the same hobbies as you.
