Vancouver Technology User Group

Created as the Vancouver NT Users Group in 1996, the group changed it's name to the Vancouver Technology User Group in 2002. Since VanTUG's inception, the interest from the membership has been centered around learning both about the newer technologies as well as to seek out other members that may have knowledge to share. Many members have Developer, IT Pro, DevOps, Database or Office Certifications.Our community has been providing access to a wide range of personal networking opportunities for 21 years!

Our mission is knowledge sharing through Professional Development Seminars and Workshops for our community.

We are Your IT Community!

Vancouver Technology User Group focuses primarily on those topics and technologies that are of interest to IT pros in all fields. We are the ones that get things done in the IT trenches, Help Desk, NOC's, Security Centers, Call Centers, Film Shoots, Game Studios, PodCasters, VR AR Mixed Reality Studios, Start-ups and Board Rooms. The hunger for information and knowledge sharing will always be there and VanTUG has played and will continue to play, an important role in facilitating this.  We could not do this without our Volunteer Speakers, Sponsors, and Patrons who continue to support our events.  VanTUG is a non-profit volunteer organization and we thank all the volunteers that make our events successful.  It is amazing how many people pitch in along the way to keep us moving forward.
