javaBin is one of the largest communities in Norway. It is driven by volunteer enthusiasts from across the country. We have branches throughout the country – in Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim, Vestfold, Sogn, Tromsø, Southern Norway and Oslo. We organize events almost every month in all branches of javaBin, including meetups, events for students, events for kids, and other exciting stuff!
Our biggest event of the year – JavaZone – takes place every September. That's right! One of the world's biggest Java conferences is run by a non-profit organization! Approximately 3,100 participants, 200 speakers, 50+ partners, and generally lots of knowledge sharing and fun!
So what are you waiting for? Come and join one of our events! And if you want to give something back then just ask about becoming an organizer, or how you can contribute in other ways. We currently have over 50 people who contribute, creating events for our nearly 3,000 members! We are always looking for new friends.
Want to join javaBin and help us to organize meetups and JavaZone? In Oslo we meet at 18:00 every Tuesday at Teknologihuset; other regions meet less frequently, so check out your region's upcoming events for more details. Just show up at any of the meetings or scheduled meetups and say hi!
javaBin is run by volunteer developers. This means that we develop most of our systems ourselves – all of them are open source and available on Github.
javaBin is open to anyone who wants to become a member. Every membership supports the Java community in Norway and helps us to organize various events throughout the year, including JavaZone.
Membership in javaBin is included in the JavaZone ticket, so if you have bought a ticket to JavaZone or have received this from your employer, then you are already a member of javaBin for that year. If you are not going to JavaZone, you can buy a separate 12-month membership for 600 NOK.
Students with a valid student ID can apply for free membership. If you are interested in a student membership, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership is valid from the day it was purchased to the same date next year. This applies for both memberships accompanying JavaZone tickets, and for regular memberships.
