This week we published a news feature discussing why Java User Groups (JUGs) are joining the JCP community.
Over the past few years, the PMO has made it a priority to recruit JUGs into the JCP program. JUGS are joining now, and their constituents have begun contributing to the community in meaningful ways, such as through service in Expert Groups and as representatives on the Executive Committee. At JavaOne, JUG representatives voiced several other ways their groups could get involved by helping with promotion, blogging, and working on TCKs.
You can read more about this phenomenon of JUGs and the JCP -- what made them hesitate to jump in, how their careers can benefit, and how they have gotten involved.
