December Meeting - Ayende Rahien

We seem to have come so far this year as a new user group in the Melbourne area. And so for our last meeting of the year we will have a special guest presenter... no secrets here.. Oren Eini (aka Ayende Rahien)
Ayende is in Melbourne for the YOW Developer Conference 2010 and has been kind enough to agree to come and talk at Melbourne Alt.NET on December 1st.
Ayende is best known for his projects such as RavenDB, Rhino Mocks and NHibernate Query Analyzer as well his contributions to a number of other open source projects, namely NHibernate and the Castle project. Ayende is a tireless contributor to the developer community continually sharing his thoughts and experience through his blog and numerous presentations. If you don't already follow his blog you can find it at
This promises to be a great evening and as at posting this all places are now booked out.
Please also don't forget that this event will not be held at our usual meeting place at the Oakton offices due to numbers and a room booking clash. Instead it will be held at:

Ground Floor Training Room
33 Lincoln Sq South
Melbourne, Victoria 3053

There will also be a nerd dinner afterwards at a venue yet to be announced. This will be a Christmas/end-of-year get together.  So please RSVP at if you're coming along so that we can get an idea of numbers and where to hold it.
Look forward to seeing you there.
