As you may have seen David Lemphers will be changing his role and will be focusing on Microsoft Dynamics.  As a result we needed somebody to cover Western Australia-and I instantly volunteered!  In talking to Dave he had a plan where he was coming out every 2 months and was making himself available for 1-3 days.  I plan to change the format a little; rather than myself visiting every time I would like to send out some of our new DPE talent to sync with the new Buzz from Microsoft -like the expression launch.   Below I have listed out what could be the years agenda could look like.  Right now this plan is very very formative and would love input from you to formalize. So if you live in Western Australia and can think of good reason for one of the Microsoft Developer Team to visit drop me a line!
