Perth .NET User Group Web Site
I’m in the process of moving the old Perth .NET web site and setting up google groups. The new site is here (albeit without the new domain mapping): http://perthdotnet.blogspot.com.au/
I’ll be sending out an email presently to invite everyone currently on the mailing list to join the group.

Perth .NET User Group Meeting, Thurs Apr 5th: MVC with Michael Minutillo
The future of application development lies in the web. Customers demand web sites and applications that are more interactive, perform faster, can service more concurrent users, and render across a wider array of devices than ever before. And they want new features. And they want them every day. In this session Mike will take you on a guided tour through the ASP.NET MVC stack with stops along the way to look at the new features and improvements found in the version 4 beta that will aid you in rapidly developing web applications on the Microsoft stack.
Mike Minutillo is a Senior Developer/Software Architect at The Birchman Group in Perth. In 2000, Mike started writing .NET software to fund his university studies and has been an active member of the .NET community ever since. Mike is a regular attendee at the Perth .NET Community of Practice where he has given presentations on new features of C#, ASP.NET MVC and Test-Driven Philosophy. Mike is also the co-author of Professional Visual Studio 2010. You can contact Mike at his blog http://codermike.com
