The developer user group started in 2010 when Mark Pearl & Terence Kruger launched the Programming Languages User Group. Over time the group evolved to be about more than just programming languages and was renamed the Developer User Group.
The Johannesburg Developer User Group has been hosted by Microsoft since 2012 and was a launch partner in their Community Nights initiative.
In 2014, the Developer User Group officially became a non-profit organisation.
In 2014, Terence Kruger & Botha van der Vyver launched the Pretoria chapter of the group, which has been hosted by Momentum ever since.
In 2018, the Cape Town chapter of the user group was launched.
DevUG is run by a team of volunteers and assistants. Without their hard work it would not be possible for the group to exist.
These wonderful folk have worked hard in the past with DevUG and we want to acknowledge them here for their contributions.
