A new Financial Year in Australia, and a bunch of technical events coming up.
Of course there's the usual monthly user groups, but there's more — particularly if you're in Adelaide.
July sees CodeCampSA in Adelaide on the weekend of July 18/19. I've put my name into the hat for speakers, and will try to be there for a chunk of Saturday (Sundays are too busy for me). I'm sure at least one of my sons will want to come along as well, which will be fun. Big thanks to David Gardiner for putting the website together.
August sees SharePoint Saturday come to Sydney (8th) and Adelaide (15th). You may not agree with Aaron about what SharePoint is, but if you're into SharePoint, I'm sure you'll get a lot out of these events.
September brings Australian geeks to the Gold Coast again for the Microsoft's annual TechEd Australia, this year with the added incentive of an HP Mini for attendees (conditions apply of course). It's the 2140, which is a discontinued line, but that doesn't make it any less attractive a machine. I'm sure this will help persuade people to get themselves over to Queensland.
And in case you hadn't realised, I've recently discovered how easy it is to put maps into blogs using Windows Live Writer… just so that you can all see the beach, and understand how poorly attended the sessions would be if they ran TechEd Australia in the summer.
