Whilst this user group doesn't meet in its previous form any more, there are other communities looked after by IBM that have great content for WebSphere users!

For example, have a look at the IBM WebSphere, Liberty, Java & DevOps Community, which has regular roadshows, events and other events published to help like-minded individuals get together and discuss the tech.

You can also follow the folks behind this on Twitter at @wasdevnet and @openlibertyio. Thanks!

What Is The WebSphere User Group UK?

We are the premiere independent organisation representing interests of UK based WebSphere customers (large or small) and users (be they coders, technicians, architects, managers or execs, covering development, infrastructure & support).

We aim to help better understand, prepare and deliver solutions with WebSphere through sharing of information & experience, but also enabling questions to be posed to IBM and feedback given within a peer group forum.

May 2018, Website Changes #2!

With the EU GDPR legislation round the corner, it was time to scrub the old membership database - all personalisation elements have been removed from the site. It still retains all the info about upcoming / previous meetings and the hard work that previous presenters have put in to make their content available to visitors.

It also seemed like a good opportunity for a spruce up - hope you enjoy the new look! For the more techie-inclined, it's now running in container on Kubernetes, for maximum platform awesomeness. I wonder whether in a few years we'll look back at this and think "oh yeah, I remember Docker ..." :)

July 2014, Website Changes

We've changed the website so that IBM's Events team will now handle registrations for events. All the meeting agendas and presentation downloads will remain open so you no longer need to register/login on this site to access them! Any questions, please let us know via the Contact Form. Thanks.
