User Groups

COWPU – Central Oregon Web Professionals User Group

Central Oregon Web Professionals’ Usergroup (COWPU) was formed in October 2006. Recognizing that there was no general forum for professionals in the web industry, the first gathering was a “meet and greet”. Our members now include developers, designers, SEO professionals, hobbyists, and marketers. Python, RoR, Coldfusion, mySQL, and PERL are just a few of the technologies used by our members.

BendTech – Bend Tech

The primary mission of BendTech is to provide the online and offline resources and infrastructure for the technical professionals and community in Central Oregon so that we can build, develop, and grow the technology industry across the region.

COISUG – Central Oregon Information Systems User Group

COISUG is an Information Systems user group based out of Bend Oregon and serving the greater Central Oregon region. Our goal is to provide a forum where IT professionals can come together, share experiences, ask questions, and network. Our specific focus is on systems, hardware, storage, and networking.
