Students and JUGs-now is the time to join!

You may already know that individual developers can join the JCP program FREE of change.  Currently about 70 percent of the JCP membership is comprised of this category of members.  Did you know that this extends and includes student developers?  During the month of May, there is extra incentive for students to get involved and participate in the JCP program. The first 20 students to join the JCP program in May 2009 will receive a 1 GB JCP program memory key (note "student" as title on JSPA).

Another growing group of members (currently 2-3%) in the JCP program are institutions and not-for-profits, including Java User Groups (JUG).  The regular $2000 annual fee is being waived for JUGs.
That's right--JUGs can join the JCP for free. Act now !

So far, in 2009, the following JUGs have joined: JUG-USA, Houston JUG, Connecticut JUG, Oklahoma City JUG, Detroit JUG, Malasia JUG, Polish JUG, Japan JUG, Riviera JUG, JUG-RU, JUG-Macedonna, JUG-Utah, JUG-RIO, JUG-WUG (London), JUG-Duchess.  Our inaugural JUG members are SouJava and BeJUG.

There will be a JUG leader meeting with members of the JCP program office on the evening of Monday, June 1 in San Francisco (the day prior to the JavaOne conference).  We want to know how we can better meet the needs of your membership and offer the support you want.  If you are interested please contact me via email at heather at jcp dot org or leave a comment on this blog.  Details are here.  If you can't make the meeting, please get in touch anyway!

A reminder for all JCP program members there is a special discount throughout 2009 for Java training classes in the Sun catalog. You will get your priority code after you join...if you need yours, contact the PMO.

  • 10% discount on classroom training
  • 25% discount on CD-ROM and web-based training
