AllJoyn User Group program
The AUGs are regional, member-organized associations that bring together more than 600 AllJoyn enthusiasts across 14 Meetup chapters in Asia, Europe, and North America. AllJoyn Ambassador experts host workshops to share their knowledge of the AllJoyn framework.
“Attendance at AUG events is skyrocketing and new AllJoyn Meetups are being formed all the time. Developers see the value of being able to network with AllJoyn experts, collaborate on solutions, and speed time-to-market for their AllJoyn-enabled, interoperable products,” said Philip DesAutels, senior director of IoT for The Linux Foundation. “Developers are crucial to expanding the AllJoyn ecosystem. They provide feedback that helps us continue strengthening the code base, and are the ones writing the applications to allow the ‘things’ in IoT to truly talk and interoperate with one another.”
