Tonight I attended the innaugural meeting of the Sydney Windows Infrastructure User Group (SWIUG) - a new UG devoted to discussing Windows infrastructure technologies and solutions. Jeff Alexander talked about DFS and storage improvements in Windows Server 2003 R2 and Rocky presented briefly on understanding developers and security. There was a turnout of 25 or so people, which was a great showing for a first meeting.

The next SWIUG meeting is on Wednesday, May 10th, and it would be great to see some more people there. Please do visit the SWIUG site and tell us what you'd like to see presented, or even offer to present something yourself. Even if you only want to do a 10-15 minute talk, we'd still be interested in knowing about it!

And congratulations must go to Mark Dormer and Derrick Buckley for finally getting this thing off the ground. It's been talked about for nearly a year now, and it's good to see it finally get off the ground.
