Christian, I just got acquainted of INETA a few days ago. I searched at for groups already established in Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil and found there are only two groups here. For a city with more than 10 million inhabitants, I guess it is quite a few. I have talked to some friends of mine and they are very keen on joining a new group in case I managed to have a new one created. The main question is where would be the best place to us to meet? Can you share experience on groups established in Europe? How did they started? Where did they meet? How are the topics defined? Looking forward to hearing from you. -- Luciano Evaristo Guerche Jacarei, SP, Brazil


Luciano, It's great that you plan to start a user group. If you are looking for a meeting place, you can ask a Microsoft Certified Technical Education Center (CTEC). Usually they don't need the rooms in the evening, and are happy to offer you a room for free as it helps them with marketing. You can also try to contact Microsoft for help. I don't know how this is in your area, n Europe there is great support from Microsoft in many countries. How are the topics defined? One part is that with every UG meeting I'm asking the attendees what topics they would like. The other part is the speakers that offer some topics. I try to do the best possible match. If a speaker comes directly from the group to tell about a technolgy s/he uses during work, some success stories, problems, it happens often that other members jump up to offer presentations. I hope this helps. I can also get you in contact with INETA in your region. Christian
