|.NET User Groups Learning Guide: International|
Here we take a whirlwind world tour of .NET user groups, one that begins in Europe, continues to the Middle East and ends in the South Pacific -- which, we reckon, is as good a place as any to end a journey. But it need not end there, so send us an email if we have neglected to list your .NET user group. (If your group's Web site is not in English, we'd appreciate it if you could do the best you can to provide one or two sentences in English for us -- sadly, we are monolingual Americans.)
