Nick Hodge and I have been talking to our local Open Source communities for the past year and we’ve finally managed to get some traction to hit the road Sam and Max style in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Microsoft and Open source? Isn’t that like cats and dogs living together? Discuss and learn what (where and why) Microsoft is embracing Open source. See which Microsoft technology can positively affect your Open source based projects, and how you can contribute. We would also like to hear your unfiltered feedback on how we should contribute, too. Come along, bring your colleagues, have some light refreshments and enjoy a relaxed conversation.

At Webdu in sydney we sat down and opened ourselves up for feedback from a community that I believe we’ve neglected for sometime. Listening to hard reality can hurt at times but I believe its a necessary pain.

So come see us in person for a relaxed evening if spirited presentations and discussions.

  • Good times, sounds interesting.

    I was there at webdu, and I must say the majority of you softies were very approachable, down to earth, and pretty cool.   The lady (forgot her name sorry) organising the mobile breakfast, the guys pimping IE, and even the progressive streaming video speaker (you I think) were not the a-typical MS people (ones that I often think of anyway).
