Just a quick post to let any Melbourne readers know of a new .net user group starting in Melbourne called DevEvening. We are a free to attend group with presentations given by a mix of members and better known speakers on any topic they wish to talk about
(related to dev) followed by a pint & tasty meal.
This concept is based on a similar I ran in the UK (devevening.co.uk) for about 2 years before emigrating to oz and I guess is across between a geek dinner and more traditional user group. We found this model made for a more interactive and social experience.
Our first evening will contain presentations on parallelization in .net 4/VS2010 and T4 templates.
