Apress User Group Spotlight

Orlando .Net User Group (ONETUG)

The Orlando .NET User Group's goal is to build a community in 
Central Florida where developers can network and share ideas. 
Founded by Joel Martinez in September 2001 and incorporated in 
2004 as a nonprofit, the group has been active in the community 
and an Apress User Group since 2004. Each month the group has a 
speaker present on a .NET topic, ranging from beginner to 
advanced. ONETUG also holds an annual Code Camp where hundreds of
developers from all over Florida gather for a free, one day 
conference. Membership to the group is free and meetings are open
to everyone interested in learning more about .NET and meeting 
other developers in the Orlando area. For more information on 
ONETUG, visit http://www.onetug.org or on Twitter (@ONETUG, 

The New Zealand Python User Group (NZPUG)

NZPUG was founded in September 2007. Danny Adair, the current 
president of the NZPUG, suggested the formation of a more 
generally encompassing Python User Group that could cater to all 
those interested in the programming language as well as support 
and promote the use of Python within New Zealand. NZPUG has since
been incorporated as a legally recognized society in New Zealand 
and has a national committee which regularly meets to discuss 
ways to further grow and expand the group.

NZPUG also runs an annual conference called Kiwi PyCon, which 
focuses on applications of Python in the scientific, web, mobile,
gaming, and animation fields. This year the conference will be 
held in Waitangi on November 20-21. For more information about 
Kiwi Pylon, please visit http://nz.pycon.org and for more 
information on NZPUG in general visit http://www.nzpug.org.
