   Apress User Group Spotlight                                                
   Great Lakes Area .NET User Group (GANG)                                    
   The Great Lakes Area .NET User Group was founded in November 2001 by John  
   Hopkins, Darrell Hawley, and Martin Shoemaker to provide educational and   
   networking resources for local .NET developers in response to the lack of  
   an organized .NET community in Michigan.                                   
   GANG was the first technology focused user group formed in Michigan and    
   was one of the first user groups to join INETA. GANG has been an active    
   Apress User Group Program member since 2004 and meets monthly at the       
   Microsoft Southfield office. The groupa**s meetings includes presentations 
   that covers a wide range of topics, from details of the framework to the   
   soft skills involved in managing projects. GANG is a volunteer-driven,     
   developer-focused organization, which welcomes all developers from the Ann 
   Arbor area. Check out their calendar for details on upcoming meetings.
