Professional Groups

Sacramento Java User Group

The Sacramento Java User Group meets every month to discuss and discover new technologies that involve Java and other electronic information systems. The group has been meeting every month since the Java was released to the public back in 1996. We are a volunteer group and the meetings are free to the public. The hard work of its members and support of its sponsors are the back bone of the group’s success and longevity. We recognize and appreciate those who have shared with the group informative presentations and insightful discussion. It is those members and guests who help make our meetings more enjoyable, exciting and informative. Java is the language we speak and Java is the language we love!

StartupSac started as a passion project as a resource site for people in Sacramento’s startup community. It’s been self-funded until recently, when our program won a RAILS grant to help bring some enhancements to the website and to launch a mobile app. Together, our team shares news and information about Sacramento’s startup ecosystem as well as produces events for startup founders. StartupSac is Sacramento’s go-to online hub for information and resources about startups in our region and we’ve got plans to provide even more value to the community through more workshops, programs, and additional online content.
