This month I have organised for Ian Randall (@Kiwipom) to talk at the April XDDN meeting.
I have also created a new twitter account @XDDN_AU from which I will be tweeting all of the sessions for Melbourne, Sydney & Perth. Be sure to follow it.

Learn about creating great MVVM applications with LESS CODE. Ian Randall will be demonstrating how to use Caliburn.Micro to create cleaner XAML based applications. These techniques will work with WinRT (Windows 8), Silverlight, Windows Phone 7 and WPF.
Caliburn.Micro can be downloaded at http://caliburnmicro.codeplex.com/
Time: 5:30 pm networking & pizza.
6:00 pm presentations start.
Caliburn.Micro - Ian Randall
Caliburn.Micro (http://caliburnmicro.codeplex.com/) is more than just an MVVM library, it's a client application framework that works every bit as hard for your app that a web framework does: Logging, composition, binding, and much, much more.
This session will cover getting started with Caliburn.Micro and give practical demonstrations of Convention Over Configuration, Actions, Screens & Conductors and will go a bit deeper under the covers (if we get time).
Ian Randall is a software developer for Datacom in Auckland and a XAML geek on the internets. He helps to run the Metro Meetup in Auckland and just spent the last 6 months putting on 'codemania' (http://codemania.co.nz). He is currently trying to catch a breath...
He loves Melbourne, partly for the friendly Victorian people, but mostly for @aeoth's legendary chocolate brownies.
