About Webuquerque

Learn, Network, Socialize

We are currently on hiatus as we plan the future of Webuquerque. Stay tuned!

Webuquerque is a New Mexico Adobe User Group geared entirely toward web professionals and folks interested in learning more about the web.

While we are an Adobe User Group, our primary agenda is not an Adobe agenda. The mission of Webuquerque is to promote standards and best practices in web design and development, while helping support and grow the local web community.

To that aim, we host free, monthly events that begin with a presentation on a web topic, followed by socializing and networking. The goal is to combine education and social.

We meet the first Wednesday of every month at One Up Elevated Lounge in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
