What is a user group?
A user group is a virtual space for people with common interests or goals. User groups within the NI Community are segmented into different categories such as Local User Groups, Product User Groups, Special Interest Groups, and Partner Groups. You also can find a list of local user group community groups organized globally. Within each of these groups, you can collaborate with other users on best practices, plan in-person meetups, or discuss any topic of your choice.
