Microsoft Developer Usergroups in Asia


Just looking at some of the INETA membership numbers and found it interesting that Australia has the 3rd largest number of usergroups and 5th largest number of members. 

I can not really imagine what a South Korea usergroup must be like with 40,000 attendees – it would larger than a TechEd keynote!

 

Country # Groups Members
Japan 62 54000
India 45 41000
Australia 36 6000
China 20 17000
Korea, South 12 490000
New Zealand 9 1100
Malaysia 4 1200
Bangladesh 3 198
Sri Lanka 2 530
Hong Kong 1 5400
Indonesia 1 4000
Mauritius 1 2500
Singapore 1 1600
Thailand 1 138

    These figures are pretty flakey – a user group can enter any figure they want into the INETA site with no verification.  I can have you on top tomorrow if you want :).

    That said, Korea has some awesome online communities – they only have 1 physical meeting a year in which they book out a stadium and get 20000+ attendees.  Talk about being a developer rock star if you get to present at that event!
