We have secured a venue at 43 Below (used to be called Bar on Barrack). We'll be in their function room. It is at 43 Barrack Street Perth:
It is underground so if you haven't been there before look for a doorway. I'll take some photos tomorrow night and post them up here on the blog.
We'll be meeting at 5:30 for a meet and greet style session and we'll kick off officially at about 6. We have the function room booked until 8 so if we need it we have it.
Tentative Agenda for the moment is:
5:30 - 6:00 Meet and greet
6:00 - 6:45 Welcome. What is ALT.NET and why a User Group
6:45 - 7:30 Discussion: Open Your Toolbox - Bring along your favourite tools (the ones you can't do without) and we'll discuss them.
I figure that the tools topic is something many people will have an opinion about. Also Hanselman's Tools List wasn't updated last year.
Bring a laptop if you want to demo a tool. I'll be bringing a projector and hopefully I can rustle up a projection screen. If not, I encourage you to wear a white top. That way a couple of us can stand side by side and we'll project the image onto our backs.
We don't have sponsors throwing money on us (somewhat purposefully at this stage) so it'll be every person for themselves. Having said that they do have some special platters for those using the function room but we have to book those in advance (this week would be better). If anyone is interested let me know and I'll see what I can organize.
