China represents a huge opportunity for Western businesses, with the world’s largest internet population (751 million users), rising incomes, rapidly changing demographics and spending habits, and the world’s largest online retail events.

What’s worse than moving offices and doing a reno? Doing 2 at the same time – which is what happened with SSW Melbourne and SSW Brisbane! The new spaces are so great but the effort was huge. I deserve a party! 🍺🎈🍺🎈 I’m delighted to announce that SSW is holding parties at SSW Melbourne and […]

While in Sydney for the NDC conference, Richard Campbell stopped by the Sydney .NET User Group to present “The History of .NET”. Informative and entertaining, this presentation is a much-watch for anyone with an interest in .NET programming.
Last week NDC Sydney was back for a second year, and, just as last year, SSW had its sticky fingers in many pies. The highlight was running an entire track of the conference, as well as live streaming and recording it. SSW was also part of the code club, conducted interviews, ran a booth, and contributed 5 speakers to the event. It was awesome.
