60+ IBM i User Groups and Communities to Join by Tom Huntington

In the 30 years since its launch, the IBM i platform (formally the AS/400) has developed a strong community of users. This community has birthed dozens of user groups all over the world to help foster the continued growth of the platform and to help users interact with others who might help solve some of their challenges they might be facing. Social media has been a large part of the growth of the IBM i community with LinkedIn boosting 26,000 members for various IBM i, iSeries, and AS/400 groups. But a digital community is not the only answer, meeting other users in person is vital to the growth of the user as well as the platform. Imagine having Thanksgiving dinner via Skype with your family... how would you connect with them on a screen?
 
This article gives a list of 60+ user groups that span the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia. This comprehensive list will help anyone looking to join a user group to get the connections they need quickly and easily.

Rod takes a deeper look at the amazing things the IBM i platform provides for it's users in this latest article as it was showcased in this year's IBM Think conference.
