The first week and a half of March have already passed, but there are still some great user group meetings scheduled for the remainder of March. Check out the line-up:
Note: Due to stricter security rules at the building where the Microsoft NYC office is located, groups that meet there must now present a list of attendees to the building's security guards. Therefore, most of these groups will be requiring users to register ahead of time. See each group's site for details.
When I started this job about a year and a half ago, I didn't know much about user groups and community.
