A few years ago, an idea was born it was and is still popularly known
as DNUG (DotNET Users Group) Hyderabad. which today has matured and
in front of you transformed as MUGH (Microsoft Users Group; Hyderabad).
Although MUGH started life as DNUG (.NET Users' Group), Hyderabad,
we felt that various Microsoft technologies function so well in concert
with each other - and our earlier name did restrict our scope to just
one of them. Today we have special groups branched into various fields
under MUGH, namely dnug (a dot net user group) , it pro (a user group
for it community), sqlcon ( India's first sql community ) , a students
group , and supports various other user groups from different Regions.
MUGH is operated by a core group that consists of Microsoft MVPs
and Community Stars - in addition, Microsoft often helps us in
conducting our activities
that include user group meetings.
Presently, MUGH's user group meetings are held once every month - you need to be a MUGH member to attend these meets.
MUGH membership is free - in fact you can join straightaway...
