The Silverlight Designer and Developer Network was announced today, A Melbourne (Australia) based interest group based around Silverlight. It caters for Designers and Developers working with the platform, giving everyone a chance to get together with other professionals and enthusiasts interested in networking and learning more about it.

The first meeting will be held:
5:30 PM for 6:00 PM start – Thursday November 27 at Microsoft Theatre, Level 5, 4 Freshwater Place, Southbank.

Its going to be a pretty full on evening with some of the top guns in the Silverlight world speaking including:

Shane Morris from Microsoft giving the keynote speech for the conference.

Jonas Follesø of Capgemini who will be giving us all the updates and info about his trip to PDC along with a whole bunch of other awesome stuff.

And if that isn’t enough to get you excited… there is an MSDN subscription up for grabs worth 20 grand!!!

The best part about the whole thing is that its not just for developers, there isn’t a whole lot out there for the designers yet, SDDN plans to change all that which is just going to be awesome!

So get moving and register because this is going to be an event not to miss!

I’m very excited about this one!
