A brief history of ACCU
The C Users Group (UK) was formed in 1987 as an informal group for those who had an interest in the C language and related topics such as operating systems, language compilers and other types of work usually done in C. In 1993 the public name Association of C and C++ Users was adopted to reflect the growing interest and use of C++ by the members of the association.
In the following years the interests of the members continued to grow into other languages, design, process and related subjects. In 2003 the abbreviated ACCU was adopted as the public name of the group removing the language specificity to embrace the wide range of interests of the members of the association.
