First Meeting. One out of three ain't bad

Well apart for the use of the word ain't.

Anyway, in order to have a meeting we'll need a venue, a date/time and a topic.

The plan at the moment is to have our first meeting Wednesday 11th February. After the first one we'll aim to meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. I would have made it the 3rd one except that I'll be in Vegas for the 3rd/4th week of March. Anyway the way it is it's the week after the Perth .NET CoP one each month.

I'm still looking for a venue but if I don't find one on time we'll meet in a pub somewhere. I do have a few irons in the fire here but if you have a suggestion about an awesome venue idea then let me know.

Tell me what you want to talk about. There are so many potential topics and I am happy to talk about pretty much all of them. You can leave a comment on this post, participate in the conversation on the ozaltdotnet mailing list or send me an email directly on


  1. Mike, good work on this is have been looking for an Alt.Net group here for a few weeks now.
    We could follow Sebs lead and do the Alt.Net beer as in London it works well, kinda like a mini open spaces format.

  2. Shot Mike! I'm in London now, but would love to be part of it when I get back to Perth one day.

    I wonder if the Grosvener on Hay St (east of the city) would have you. The staff their are great and I think they have a large upstairs area.

  3. Thanks guys. For some silly reason blogger doesn't default to notifying blog owners about comments so I didn't actually see these straight away. Our venue at this stage is going to be 43below bar. We have a function room so we can have quiet, a projector & beer!
