The Java User Group Lugano is a group of enthusiasts of the Java programming language and of all the Open Source technologies surrounding it. JUG Lugano is a non-profit organization based in wonderful Lugano, southern Switzerland. The aim of the JUG Lugano is to provide software engineers active on Java and related open source technologies with a common place to meet in person, share knowledge and experiences, seek advice, and establish a professional and personal network.
