A new meetup group has formed in Melbourne, Australia - Hackduino. Meeting around once every four weeks at North Melbourne.
I just signed up, not that I plan to be in Melbourne any time soon but you never know, I do get around a bit :)
I just signed up looking forward to the next meet up.
The next Melbourne Hackduino meetup is schedule for Thursday, October 25th. "Show and tell", etc.
The Melbourne "Hackduino" events are now scheduled for once a month - see http://www.meetup.com/Hackduino-Electronics-Meetup-Group/
I'm also running a workshop for beginners on interfacing basic hardware with Arduino. It's for absolute beginners and there are a few places left.
