What we’ve got in store for you is, we believe, better for not only more people in the JUG, but benefits us too and provides the feedback we need to justify promotions that cost money. It’s the way of the software marketing world.
The idea is this: For every JUG member who enters the competition, the pot amount increases by $5. ZeroTurnaround will get the whole thing started with a primary donation of $500, so if 500 developers around the world enter, the pot will be $3000! That would come in handy right?
The winner will be picked at random and the JUG they belong to gets the whole pot of money. So, the more people from your JUG who enter, the more chance your JUG will win! So make sure you get as many people signed up as you can to stand the best chance of winning!

To all JUGs, big and small (no pun intended), we’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first, the bad? Ok here it is: our famous [yet ill-used] JUG sponsorship program, which began in 2009 and donates two, 1-year JRebel Enterprise licenses to winners each month, is going the way of the dodo. That is to say, being extinguished so that it is extinct and no longer alive…ok, we think you get it.
GASP! CRY! YAWN(?)
But wait! There is some good news too: we are changing the way we support Java User Groups, to a method that we think benefits JUGs even more.
Six Years and Counting
ZeroTurnaround has spent more than 6 years helping Java developers be more productive. Irrespective of who or where they are, or what projects they work on, JRebel has helped more than 35,000 developers eliminate redeploys in Java, so that they can see the impact of their code changes instantaneously. With constant feedback they write better code faster. Peace.Read more

Each cold, windy November, we traditionally send a team of our best developers and marketeers over to a Belgium for Devoxx BE (for us already a 5th year!). Strong Belgian beer didn’t fail to spice up our evenings with a few comical stumbles but I’m glad to report that everyone has survived the trip in the end and no families will suffer…
The vJUG is an online Virtual JUG created to connect Java Developers worldwide with resources, regardless of proximity to local meet-ups. RebelLabs is fully on board and will serve as the official sponsor of the vJUG, providing them with the necessary time, infrastructure and smart people to run sessions and generate interaction.Read more
“I hate [redeploying] so much, I actually try to architect my development environment to try to avoid them, particularly if the project uses Liferay. When I’m not using JRebel I redeploy and test my code once every 30 minutes or so, but when I use JRebel, I test every minute as my code is reloaded instantly.”
“This instant feedback lowers the number of bugs in your code because you test your features instantly, if you can’t test instantly you sometimes forget to test some of the things you’ve effectively ‘coded blindly’.”
