This is the Melbourne chapter of The Australian Alt.Net Community.

We meet on the last Tuesday of every month at 6pm.

The Australian Alt.Net Community is a self-organizing, ad-hoc community of developers bound by a desire to improve ourselves, challenge assumptions, and help each other pursue excellence in the practice of software development, obviously with a strong emphasis on development using the Microsoft.NET platform.

Though the name might suggest otherwise we are not looking for alternatives to Microsoft or .NET, nor are we in any way Anti-Microsoft.

The "Alt" in Alt.Net comes from the fact that we are always looking at alternatives to see if we can learn better ways of doing things, no matter where that alternative might come from, and incorporate it into our practice in the .NET world. So if it's something new from Microsoft, that's great - if it's an approach from the open source world or an alternate language or somewhere else entirely then that's even better!
