Join a Progress User Group - Keep Progress Community Strong!
What is a Progress User Group?
A Progress User Group (PUG) is an independent association of technical professionals who work with products from the Progress Software Corporation. Typically, they are programmers in the Progress 4GL or fourth generation language who meet to discuss topics related to the Progress Software family of products and the applications built with those products. PUG stands for the Progress User Group. The leading letters indicate which state or region the PUG supports. For example, VAPUG supports Virginia and nearby areas.
