If you're into programming in the North East of England, take a look at ACCU NE. We meet once a month and perform some form of activity intended to expand our knowledge, for example:
- Discussing a prearranged journal article
- Co-operating in the learning of a new language or library
- Maybe, one day, co-operating on a group project
For more information about the meetings and updates you can join the ACCU NE mailing list at http://accu.org/mailman/listinfo/accune ACCU NE meets once a month, on the first Saturday of the month, sharing a venue at the Discovery museum, Newcastle Upon Tyne with the Tyneside Linux User Group (LUG) - see http://www.tyneside.lug.org.uk/ for details and see http://www.tyneside.lug.org.uk/meetings.php for directions.
