Mick from the Galway user group, GAMTUG has done a mighty job in organizing the first Developer Developer Developer event in Ireland. This is being held in Galway on the May bank holiday and there are lots of TechEd speakers coming including Alex Homer and Dave Sussman. Have a look at the line up. http://www.dddireland.com/agenda-1.htm
