3.5 years ago we established SilverlightShow as a portal providing news, articles, events, webinars and anything related to the world of Silverlight. We also founded the Silverlight User Group in Bulgaria, which now amounts to 400+ members!
Since recently, me and the team at SilverlightShow have started working more closely with Silverlight User Groups worldwide, inviting them to collaborate on sharing content, and supporting them as much as we can. We offer to spread the word about user group events, share on SilverlightShow portal session recordings and materials, purchase books for the user group members (inviting the members to share their book reviews on SilverlightShow), send SilverlightShow SWAG and sponsor various other User Group initiatives. As a result of this collaboration with Seattle Silverlight User Group I am happy to be delivering a session on OData/WCF Data Services with Silverlight on March 2nd.
We are also discussing partnership with a huge User Group in the UK - NxtGen, the Phoenix User Group led by Dave Campbell and several others. We hope this collaboration will soon result in more members and more valuable UG meetups for those groups!
If your User Group would like to partner with us in any possible way - reach me with your ideas. You can also meet me at the MVP summit beginning of March or at MIX11 to discuss.
