Virtual JUG is a simple concept based on the idea to organize a group that would generate quality content.

It is simpler to get technical leaders from around the world to present online and there are no travel cost concerns.  The intent is not to replace local JUG's but rather increase their value and also represent a sort of global JUG. Additionally it enables developers without an access to a local jug with a means to connect with many developers around the world.
Live sessions are streamed online and as chat  ##virtualJUG on freenode is used. But you don't have to trust my word for the quality of the content, here is a list of the past sessions : 
Many thanks to  Simon Maple the organizing team  Anton ArhipovGeert BevinJames GoughOliver White. Keep up the good work.
