Welcome to the West Midlands Java User Group!


The West Midlands Java User Group (aka WM-JUG) is a community of software developers who use languages for the JVM in their professional lives.

Affiliated with the Dublin Java User Group and the network of global JUGs, our mission is to provide a platform for Java education in the Birmingham and West Midlands area. Our monthly events enable our members to hear how new technology is being built and applied in companies across the world, and to learn best practice from the international Java experts (the ones that your boss won’t pay for you to meet at European and Worldwide conferences!).

WM-JUG events enable our members to meet and develop their local network of Java experts.
