O’Reilly Group Discount Slides

O'Reilly Media has made available a set of slides highlighting their user group discount, in three formats (Keynote,, and PowerPoint):

Discount on Programming Books from O'Reilly

Most if not all Oracle developers know that O'Reilly Media is renowned for the quality of their software development books. Members of this user group can enjoy a generous discount on any books ordered from the extensive O'Reilly catalog.

New SDOUG Website

This user group now has a brand-new website, built from the ground up using Drupal 7, by website developer Michael Ross (SDOUG's webmaster). The previous version of the site, based upon Drupal 6, needed to be replaced because the latest version, 6.25, was required a more recent version of PHP than what was available with the previous hosting.

MAKE Magazine

Members of this user group can receive a special discount on a subscription to MAKE Magazine, which is the first magazine devoted entirely to DIY technology projects. MAKE Magazine unites, inspires, and informs a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages.

Proud Member of the O'Reilly User Group Program

Over the years, O'Reilly Media has been the biggest supporter of the SDOUG and its many members. We would like to thank O'Reilly for their continual assistance, as the group has evolved ever since its inception a long time ago.

O'Reilly Webcasts

For web developers and designers short on time but overwhelmed with new technologies that need to be learned as quickly as possible, listening to webcasts is quickly emerging as one of the most effective — and even entertaining! — ways to gain those new skills.

O’Reilly Media offers a host of technical webcasts, with new ones appearing all the time.

O'Reilly Offers 40% and 50% Discount for User Groups
