Why join ACCU?
"I knew the language and tools better than any of my colleagues - so I thought I was a great programmer. Then I joined the ACCU and not only found out there was much, much more than I knew, but also found a community that helped me learn it."
As a member of the ACCU you are part of a community of programmers who care about programming. The ACCU is a tremendous forum for interacting and meeting with programmers through the discussions, the articles in the ACCU journals, the mentored developers initiative and the ACCU conference.
Members of ACCU receive bi-monthly copies of the journals, may join the mentored developers groups and have access to the full archive of the discussions and journals. Membership attracts discount rates for the ACCU conference and suppliers who actively support the ACCU.
Members are encouraged to contribute to the discussions, the book reviews and the ACCU journals to develop their skills and depth of understanding.
