What’s a community?




A community is a group of people that
make things together.
                    8
User groups meet regularly
               in person, to share and learn.
                  And drink a pint or two.
FO
 SD...
User groups help bridge
  the gap between core
developers and end users.
            10
User groups are a training
 ground for new speakers,
developers and organizers.
            11
User groups are also just fun.
