At TechEd EMEA 2009, I was invited by Tiberiu Covaci to participate in a panel discussion. We talked about what is takes to be a User Group lead, how you can be involved with community activities and what is in for you. What made the panel really interesting was to hear different opinions from people leading Dev and IT user groups through INETA and GITCA, and also how different people from Microsoft feel about user group interactions.
The sessions is recorded and available for viewing and download here:
Please let me know if you are interested to become user group lead. Any help is welcomed and will bring value to our community.
