Important Notice for August 2011
Community night is normally the second Tuesday of the month, however since that is a public holiday it has been moved to Monday the 15th of August!
What is community night?
For those who do not know this is a FREE event that happens monthly where a variety of user groups get together at Microsoft's offices. User groups are not influenced by Microsoft, they just use the facilities. User groups that are there on a regular basis:

Various user groups starts at different times. I think the first UG kicks off at 16:00 and it can run to 21:00.
However depends if you attend multiple UG, stay for passage conversation, etc…
So up to you, I have nights where I arrived after 17:30 and other times left at 18:00, no pressure!
