"Code Camp Oz is a .NET developer community-driven event which allows people with interests across the .NET platform to come together in one location and see speakers (including many expert presenters) present on a wide range of developer topics. Very successful events were held in 2005, 2006 and 2007."
Code camp is on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of April, in Wagga Wagga (with pre-conference events on the Friday before).
I may well have the only presentation that does not involve Visual Studio. Here's the blurb:

“User Experience” (UX) is so hot right now. Business magazines talk about it, stakeholders want it, people even have job titles containing it. Designers, usability engineers, information architects, psychologists and even anthropologists are all circling, fighting for a piece of the UX pie. But at the end of the day, coders own the user experience. All the drop-shadows in the world don’t mean a thing if they don’t make it into the code. Join Shane Morris - recovering developer, long-time user interface designer and Microsoft User Experience Evangelist – for a discussion of user experience from the developer’s viewpoint. What simple things can developers do to deliver better user experience? If you could only do one thing to improve your application’s user experience, what would it be? What about designers? What do they do? How can they help? How can you work effectively with them? This talk focuses on practical, realistic ways to ensure your next application delivers a great user experience.
