The Sydney Architecture User Group is having its second meeting this month on Thursday, 26th November. Full details can be found on our new (but very simple) website located here ( http://thesaug.org ). You can subscribe to the monthly email and also indicate your intention to come by selecting the RSVP option (which would be really nice if you did :-) )
There is a sample chapter from my upcoming book on all things performance related within the Microsoft platform. Specifically, the book will be about performance testing, profiling and optimisation for web and desktop applications developed using Microsoft.NET.
