Of course there is! For a start, Nigel Watling (CardSpace Technology Evangelist from MS Corp) is down in Melbourne presenting a one-day hands-on developer lab on CardSpace on Tue August 29th. This is the same session that he's presenting in Sydney the previous day (see Anna's blog). If you are interested, then drop Chris Louloudakis or myself a line - spaces are limited, so it's pretty much a case of first-in, best dressed. Thanks very much to BMC Australia, who made this session possible by allowing us to use one of their labs for a day.
Also, Ron Jacobs is doing a mini-tour of Australia in the week following Tech.Ed - pencil in Canberra on Wed 30th, Melbourne Thur 31st, and Perth Fri 1st Sept. I'll post again once the logistics for community events in each of these locations are nailed down. For now mark these dates in your calendar if you want to see the force behind ARCast in person in your town, especially if you aren't going to be able to get to Tech.Ed this year.
