We have had a flurry of JUG registrations this month, it's great to see the Joomla! community alive and well around the world, setting up new groups and spreading the word!
If you're interested in starting up a JUG just visit the directory at community.joomla.org/user-groups.html and see whether there are any nearby. If not, all you need is somebody else to join you in starting the group, and a venue in which to meet. You'll also need some kind of online presence, ideally a website but you can also use Meetup.com or social networks to organise your group while you get a website off the ground.

Here's a roundup from the newly formed JUG Carioca:
This month we invited SEO and monetization specialist Marcio Marçal, founder of SimProarte – http://simproarte.com.br/ – to showcase one of his recent projects. He presented this study of casa "From ZERO to THOUSANDS a month, in a year".
This presentation was supposed to last one hour, but because of the great interest of attendees it took almost hours to end! The presentation was shared over social networks and many people demanded for a course on the subject.
