I am java programming language student & now professional(as per designation not by skill).
I go through various websites related to growth of knowledge & career development like IEEE, ASACA, Opensourge.org etc
My question is if i want to become software engineer or project manager or above if possible in future, then which one or all memberships important or something else?
when i read members benefit each one website, i thought this is important for me. but i confuse so i ask here.
need proper guidance.

Well it depends on where you are and what you think you can benefit. Where you are allow you to network. What you think you can benefit is about will you "actually" use such and such resource offered by those societies?

Societies like IEEE and ACM have digital libraries (which cost more than basic membership) that can allow members to access their journals, magazines, and stuff online.

I personally had been member of a few societies for past few years but I found it not that useful. I currently only keep the ones that I must keep.

Thanks K. Tsang,
Sorry for posting topic in wrong location.
...but I found it not that useful. ...

Currently i live India & most of major societies located in USA & their major activity occurs at there.
I think some "journals, magazines, and stuff online" very informative but too costly for Indian's.
So from few years i waiting for they reduce their cost & active in India.
