Welcome to the Liferay UK User Group! #

@LiferayUKUG #

As this is a local user group, we encourage you to share information and help increase awareness and adoption of Liferay in the UK. Our goal is to form a network of people in the UK who work with, have used, are investigating or are simply interested in Liferay.

Next meet up #

London - Tuesday 28 October #

Join us for a Liferay community meetup... on a boat! All Liferay fans and curious Java explorers are welcome. Please email gloria.willis@liferay.com if you would like to propose a talk to share (we'll buy you a drink!).

WHERE: The Tattershall Castle (The Bridge - up the stairs) Victoria Embankment London SW1A 2HR

Being a boat, space is limited! Please be sure to RSVP on our Meetup page.

If you have any questions or ideas for future meetups please email the UK Community Manager: gloria.willis@liferay.com.

How do I join this group page? #

Easy! Just send a quick email to our UK community manager, gloria.willis@liferay.com, and she will add you as a member. Remember you need to have a free account on www.liferay.com to join this group and post in the forums, etc. Take a minute to do that by clicking here

Even if I don't live in London? Yup. We know there's a growing Liferay community in the UK, and lots of you won't be based in London. Why not join us, take advantage of the forums and seek out some like-minded folk near you? We'd love to see local user groups grow, whether in Ipswich or Inverness :o)  

You can also join the Meetup.com group and stay on top of the latest news here.
