There is lots happening in the community and this is great to see.
The latest is that Nas Khan is setting up a XAML based user group in Wellington. She's put up a blog post outlining her current thinking. The long and short of it is that she has a few things she'd like feedback on.
The group she is considering starting would be XAML oriented - which means Silverlight and WPF specifically. She is also interested in getting designers coming along, so this is not the usual user group.
If you are interested in this sort of group, head over to Nas's blog post and give her some feedback on the points she's made.
Good work Nas!
