A few months ago I received an email from Rob Houweling explaining his ideas for a new Dutch usergroup, focused on Silverlight, Expression Design and Expression Blend. I’ve had been playing with the idea of a Silverlight usergroup myself at the time, so I didn’t have to think very long about joining. After meeting and numerous emails between six silverlight enthusiasts(Rob Houweling, Mark Monster, Koen Zwikstra, Antoni Dol, Eric van den Hoek and me, Timmy Kokke) the plans are worked out and it’s time to go public.

On November 2, 2009 the user group for Silverlight & Expression is officially launched. Silverlight & Expression Insiders will organize a number of activities in the near feature. You can find the usergroup at the following website: http://sixin.nl.
What audience do we try to reach?
The target audience of Silverlight & Insiders consist mostly of (Interaction) Designers and (Front-end) Developers that are enthusiastic about Silverlight and the Expression tools of Microsoft and would like to know more about them or would like to share their knowledge on these subjects.
