Welcome to the new OrlandoJUG social network!


I've tried to bring this community together a variety of ways including putting the JUG on the map, revisions to the legacy OrlandoJUG website, starting various mailing lists and discussion groups, the blogs, podcasts and the jobs mailing list. It's all been good, but fragmented. All the legacy lists are still in place. You're going to love this new site! What you see here is running a Java backend and uses the new OpenSocial API.

Some of you have visited Zoobird, the experimental social network I've been running in the background to flesh out the nuances of online communities. It's going well and the members like it. That's what I had hoped. So, dig in and have a good time here with this online community. You won't see all the functionality at once. There's a lot to learn. And, it's going to change with time.

One of my favorite sayings goes "Clear understandings lead to long friendships". This is a technical community. If you have jobs to post or advertising, the same *other* avenues still exist: the JUG Jobs mailing list, sponsoring a meeting, etc...

Having a good time and not taking ourselves too seriously - that's what this is all about. Dig in! Go nuts! I have a feeling the climate in CodeTown is changing...

All the best,

Michael Levin
