Community is a really important part of the DDD Sydney ethos and we couldn't do what we do without the support of many different User Groups around Sydney.
So if you've got a spare evening, head on down to a User Group, hang out with other like-minded people and keep the community spirit going.
ALT.NET Sydney is one of the longest running Sydney .NET user groups, and focuses on the non-Microsoft world of being a .NET developer. Across the months there are talks on everything from DevOps to Xamarin, Cloud to browsers and everything in between.
Girls .Net is a place for passionate female .net developers to learn from each other's experiences, socialise and network with a like-minded female in the industry. Girls .Net provides a safe space for female developers to have chances to practice their presentation skills and foster some new thought leaders.

Umbraco Sydney is a bi-monthly user group focusing on the is a popular Open Source content management system. Umbraco prides itself on being all about the community. They hold an annual Festival rather than a Conference in Denmark (obviously a bit of a hike for us in Sydney!) which is all about having fun as a web developer.
