I was reading about the latest initiative from the DEV team on IRL.dev this morning
And thought it'd be a great time to raise awareness to some of the other more general event lists I know of in Australia 🦘.
If you're looking for a list of Microsoft-centric user groups check out this list maintained by Microsoft MVP Loryan Strant:
A listing of Microsoft-related user groups across Australia & New Zealand
Australia & New Zealand Microsoft-related User Groups
We've collated a list of all the user groups in Australia that might be of interest to Microsoft professionals and end users across the entire suite of products and services.
The shortcut to this repo is aka.ms/anzusergroups.
Got a question? The FAQ probably has the answer you need.
Can I contribute, or add an event?
Of course! We'd love you to! See the contribution guide for how.
