Welcome! If you are a passionate developer using either Java, Scala, Groovy, Clojure, JRuby or any other language based on the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) you are in the right place. Our plan is to organise a monthly face to face meeting with 2-3 presentations starting around 7PM and later on move to a pub for drinks.

Join our community on Meetup.com to be kept in the loop about our next events! Or you can socialize with our members on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Or better yet, submit a talk proposal to us!


BJUG took shape in order to create a strong community for all the developers in Bucharest that are using Java or any other JVM based programming language. It was born out of Andrei Savu's initiative. The two other founding mebers are Ioan Eugen Stan and Mihai Soloi. The first meeting took place in May 2012 at the Ceata Foundation with approximately 25 participants. Since then, the group slowly but surely started to grow.


BJUG is organizing monthly meetings with technical talks based on the Java ecosystem. Usually, after the meeting, the participants go out for a drink or two nearby. Checkout the BJUG Meetup page to see when then next meeting is scheduled!

If you'd like to sponsor one of our meetings, please contact us at [email protected] or by getting in touch with one of our organisers.
